Two young dancers came home from the British Open at the Celtic Association of Irish Dance laden with trophies.

Athena Kolyos, of Ifield, and her friend Louise Lyons were among 51 dancers who took part in the contest in Surrey on May 24. Athena, 13, who attends the Tornoir School of Irish Dance, in Tilgate, competed in the under 13s.

She said: “It was a really hard competition and I didn’t expect to win. I’m really excited.”
