At just 11-years-old, Angel Thomas, from Liverpool, is the country's youngest shopkeeper.

She has set up a boutique, selling clothing for animals in the heart of Liverpool.

The young-entrepreneur taught herself to sew and knit so she can create her own range of clothing for pets.

All her free time is spent running the shop, but she says she likes running the business because she loves animals.

She wants to raise enough money so she can study to become a vet.
