A student from Stiffkey, near Wells, has secured top place in a regional competition.

Molly Pickels, 16, from the College of West Anglia's King's Lynn campus came first in the WorldSkills UK competition in Birmingham.

WorldSkills UK brings together apprentices and young people from across the country to compete to be the best in their chosen skill.

The competitions inspire young people to be ambitious and aims to equip them with life-long skills.

Molly was one of three College of West Anglia students who competed against six of the country's top social care students from colleges in London and The Midlands. Harriet McDonald, 19, from King's Lynn came second and Megan Clark, 17, from Wisbech was placed third.
