Stamford gymnast Lottie Smith received the perfect early birthday present after landing a double medal haul while representing England at the weekend.

Lottie – who turned 21 on Tuesday – was part of the England side that triumphed in the Northern European Championship at Cardiff where they faced the host nation Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden and Jersey plus several other countries.

The former Stamford School pupil came seventh overall but also qualified for the apparatus finals where she took second spot and the silver medal after the England team had struck gold in the overall event.
