Primary school children met the most successful British gymnast of all time yesterday as they helped to launch a national enterprise initiative.

Children from St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Chingord gathered at the Olympic Park with Beth Tweddle to hear about how she has opened her own gymnastics academy.

Miss Tweddle also introduced the children to The Young Enterprise Fiver Challenge.

Pupils at the school are now being encouraged to see how much money they can make throughout June by starting up a mini-business with just five pounds.
