A six-year-old girl from Norwich is in high spirits after her treehouse was crowned the best in the UK.

Ruby Jennings came up with the idea for the treehouse after reading Enid Blyton's The Faraway Tree stories with her parents at bedtime.

She was so captivated by the tale, she began to collect recycled wood from the local area to make her dream a reality.
