Rebeka Tiler became the youngest weightlifter to win a senior women's British title as she took gold in 69kg class in Coventry.

The 15-year-old from Denholme's total of 205kg would also have been good enough to win gold in both the higher 75kg and 75+kg categories.

Tiler snatched 90kg and lifted 115kg in the clean and jerk.

She missed out on a new personal best in the snatch at 95kg as she lost balance, allowing her left knee to touch the floor.
