Children at a school in Salford have been treated to a visit from Olympian Beth Tweddle MBE.

The medal winning gymnast was on hand a Branwood primary school to answer questions and inspire them to take up sports in and outside of school.

Beth who took the bronze at London's 2012 gams, began training from the age of 7.

“All the children and staff really enjoyed meeting Beth and had a long list of questions to ask her. We run lots of sports programmes at Branwood, so it was fantastic to have Beth join us and give us some top tips. Beth was impressed with all our budding gymnasts.”

– Headmistress of Branwood, Mrs Follett
