Cheerleaders travelled to Paris to compete in their first European championship in four years - and came away with top marks.

Ascension Eagles Cheerleaders (AEC), based in Custom House, represented the UK alongside 10 other countries in the Spring Open Championship in the New York Convention Centre at the Disneyland Paris Resort.

Their junior team Prophecy (aged 11 to 14) won first place in their category and received the highest score in the entire competition.

The Dynasty group (Age 11 to 13) also grabbed first place in their division while team Prodigy (Age six to 10) came in third place.

The young cheerleaders also took part in an opening ceremony procession where Auguste Subbotinaite, six, Harmony Osinowo, 11, and Tania De Sousa Pinto, 14, had the honour of carrying the England flag and country placard.
