Huntingdon Gymnastics Club enjoyed medal success at the British Team Championships.

Their quartet of Emilyse Birch (11), Teegan Milligan (12), Saffron Belfon (12) and Teegan Barnes (15) earned bronze at the event in Guildford.

They finished third out of 15 of the leading club teams in the country, with Nottingham taking gold and City of Manchester grabbing silver.

Milligan also starred in solo competition an individual all-around silver medal after impressing across four pieces of apparatus.

She has been selected to represent England along with clubmate Lottie Smith in the Rushmoor Rosebowl next month.

It is a prestigious international event at Camberley, in Surrey.

Smith (16) has been selected for her country in the past, but it will be a new experience for Milligan.
