The supreme court has agreed to hear the voting age challenge from the Make it 16 group. 

The group believes it's age discrimination that 16- and 17-year-olds can't vote.  

The Court of Appeal actually agreed with that but refused to issue a formal declaration of inconsistency with the Bill of Rights. 

That's what the group is after from the Supreme Court.

Make it 16 spokesperson, Mia Rennie joined Andrew Dickens.
