A young skier from Widdrington Village was on the podium twice at a weekend of national competitions.

There were three races for the Under 10s female category at the Pendle Club national race in Lancashire and eight-year-old Amy Stokoe was the youngest participant. Her times from the two morning races were dead even (19.01s).

The course was different in the afternoon and she was quicker with 18.11s to finish third overall.

A GBR outdoor race put together by Snowsports England, Snowsports Wales and Snowsports Scotland took place on Sunday at the same venue.

The Longhorsley First School pupil, representing the Sunderland-based Tigers Ski Development Club, was second in the under 10 female section with times of 19.38s and 19.13s on the same course.
