A Costessey teenage carer who looks after his mum while also studying for his A-levels was among the young people honoured at an awards ceremony in Norwich.
Saul Watson, 17 and from Valley Road, won the education category of the Bernard Matthews Youth Awards held at OPEN last night and which were presented by Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton.
Helen said she was honoured to share the stage with the incredible and inspiring young people at the awards, and said she was absolutely blown away by the talent of the performers from The Garage in Norwich who entertained the audience with beat boxing, street dancing and more.
Saul, who goes to Ormiston Victory Academy, impressed the judges by his dedication to helping his mum Linda, who suffered a stroke in April 2002, and his determination to pursue his dreams of studying aeronautical engineering at university.
