Four gymnasts from Stevenage have clinched a place in national finals while plenty more of their club-mates returned from a regional event with a host of medals.

Stevenage Sports Acrobatics Club were competing at the East Region Prelim Acro Gymnastic competition in Milton Keynes in what was their first outside competition for nearly two years.

And it proved to be a sensational return to action with all the club's gymnasts coming back with medals.

Claiming bronze medals were the trio of Imogen, Brianna and Angel and the pairings of Alex and Ella, Jack and Skye and Chloe and Emma.
