Three siblings from Amble are celebrating after receiving their black belt 2nd dan at kickboxing.

Ellie, Adam and Joe Goodfellow all attained their 1st dan belts last year, but now, after another year of training, they have progressed to their 2nd dan.

What makes this such an unusual achievement is that not only are they brothers and sisters, but they are only aged 11, 10 and eight respectively.

The trio train regularly at the Tempest Martial Arts Academy in Blyth Sports Centre, with Peter and Janine Wilson.

They are hosting a charity night on Saturday to raise money for an organisation called George’s Journey, which was set up to raise funds to fight muscular dystrophy.

Ellie, Adam and Joe are all due to kickbox against children from another martial arts academy in North Shields.
