BURNLEY College student Ashley Grennan, 17, is set for a trip to Japan after winning a prestigious competition.

The Advanced Level IT student recently won a gold UK Skills Challenge award for his "outstanding" web page design.

He is now off to Shizuoka to represent the UK in the world competition.

He said: "I still can't believe that I actually managed to get through.

"It was quite nerve-wracking presenting my work to a panel of judges, but they seemed to like what I did."
