A group of young dancers have been busting moves at an international competition in Glasgow.

Three teams from the Urban Street Dance Crew from Thetford competed at the World Street Dance Championships in the Scottish city, with two solo artists gaining prizes.

Brianna Conroy, 16, came first in the over 16 beginner category, while 19-year-old Olivia Russell was ranked 5th in the over 16 novice category.

The three teams from the crew who competed were the under 14s Unitee, under 18s L2D, and over 18s Injustice.

While the teams didn't make it through to the final six, their efforts have been commended by the crew.
