A teenage aviation enthusiast is feeling sky-high after becoming one of the youngest qualified solo glider pilots in the country.

Lewis Bricknell is just 14, but took to the skies for his first solo flight on February 2.

Lewis, of High Street, West Haddon, has been fascinated by aviation from a young age, and his dad Gary thinks he is only the second person in the UK to get his pilot’s licence so young.
