An 11-year-old girl is believed to have become one of the only taekwondo black belts to land a place at the prestigious Royal Ballet School in London.

Ava May Llewellyn, who lives in Downend, South Gloucestershire, saw off competition from 800 applicants from across the world, all vying for one of 24 places at the school.

She spoke to BBC Points West's David Garmston and Alex Lovell, along with the head of her dance studio Kathy Plaster.
