A roller skater from a St Neots club has been selected to represent Britain at the World Championships in Australia next month.
Rebecca Reeves retained her British champion crown after winning an event in the summer and had now been selected for a European event in Portugal as well as the world event.
Reeves, British Junior solo champion, has represented her country since 2000. The sport is similar to ice dancing and includes compulsory dance and free dance requirements.
Mum Jackie said: "I took her ice skating when she was four but it was a bit wet when she fell over so I thought we would try roller skating and it went from there."
