An apprentice from Thetford made it to the national final of a bricklaying competition.
John Moore, who is employed by NAP Anglia and studies at West Suffolk College, took part in the junior/entrant class of the Guild of Bricklayers regional competition in Cambridge.
He was given a certain number of hours to build a brickwork model - which he had only seen on the day - and came first in his class.
He was competing against five other apprentices in the section.
He was joined in the final by fellow West Suffolk College apprentice Lewis Whiting, from Haverhill, who took part in the senior section of the competition.

Martin Cribb, technician demonstrator in bricklaying at West Suffolk College, said: “Their first places were thoroughly deserved. Their all-round attitude and professionalism stood out and they are a credit to themselves, their family, employers and West Suffolk College.“
The pair won prize money, a certificate and a selection of tools, as well as going forward to the national final.
