SPEED SKATING: Twelve year-old Flynn McGurk had something extra to celebrate at the British Indoor Inline Speed Skating Championships in Essex.

The Wisbech ISS club member was named Most Promising Young Skater of 2015, just over a year after joining the Walpole Highway-based club.

More than 100 skaters from across the country met at Maldon to compete in the prestigious annual event.

Twelve team members from the West Norfolk club travelled to represent Wisbech and brought home medals and trophies.

Team coach Mike McInerney eased to victory in the Masters Men’s time trials, 500m and 1500m races. His daughter Eve won silver medals in all three of her events and Oli Johnson gained bronze medal in his first junior boys event.

Arthur Buckler gained a bronze medal in his first championships, as did Ladies Master Jo Tidman.

McGurk won bronze in the 300m and silver in the 800m, with a fourth place in the time trial ahead of his major award.

Other team participants included Dylan Taylor, James Garwell, Jonathan Garwell, James and Warren Eve and Nathan Steele.
