Home carer Vanessa English turned Brazilian Jujitsu champ
A home carer from Nottingham who took up Brazilian Jujitsu as a hobby has been preparing for a title fight in Portugal.
Vanessa English, 24, originally from Norfolk, took up the sport four years ago and trains following night shifts.
She is currently a purple belt world champion but is now aiming for a European brown belt title in Lisbon at the weekend.
