A junior soldier from Lynn has been awarded a trophy for being the best shot at Army Foundation College in Harrogate.

Craftsman Jay Hadley, 17, was presented with the Baker Rifle at the prestigious college at Uniacke Barracks, Penny Pot Lane.

Jay said: “I was surprised but I was pleased to have won it and it gives me confidence.”

He joined the Army Foundation College in September for a unique course combining vocational education and military training.
