A group of Norfolk baton twirlers have swooped three national titles for the second year in a row.

The Norwich Angel Baton Twirlers team stormed the UK National Championships in Crawley over the Easter weekend, with three of their members returning to Norfolk with titles.

Hannah Barrett, 17, Norwich, won the national title for the two baton twirl and team mate Alice Trett, 18, Sprowston, for dance twirl.

The national title for duo twirl was taken by Olivia Cooper, 17, Norwich and Alice Trett.

Club leader Ann Cullum, from Norwich, said: 'We are all celebrating, they train hard all year round and it just proves that hard work pays off. It's great to see them get the results they deserve.'
