A JUNIOR ice skater is fast becoming a little star after achieving her passport to becoming a professional.

Ellie-May Slater, of Waterton Road, recently completed the 10-level Skate UK programme, before going on to achieve gold in the Skate UK Star programme.

It can lead to national tests and a professional career in ice skating.

The 10-year-old has already achieved three first places so far this season at competitions including Grimsby and London.

Proud mum Leecia, 40, said: “Its amazing what she has achieved so far. The school has been fantastic and everyone there is as proud of her as we are.”
