Haringey's very own 'young heroes' were the stars of the show at an event to mark the talent and achievements of young people in the borough.

Tom Huddlestone attended the event to present Fabrice Yala with the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club players-sponsored Young Volunteer Award.

The award focuses on commending the individual who has dedicated their own free time to help others in the Haringey area.

Charlie McNamara, who was shortlisted for the award, was also congratulated on her work in the community.

The 'Young Haringey Heroes' event, organised by Haringey Council, was held at the Sixth Form Centre in Tottenham, with young people being presented with awards in a range of categories to reflect the wide range of activities and achievements by young people.

More than 200 nominations were received from schools, faith groups, community groups and neighbours.

Cllr Liz Santry, cabinet member for children and young people, said: "As a council, we're delighted to mark the achievements of this remarkable group of young people who deserve public acclaim for their work, commitment and success - much of which goes unseen and unrecognised.

"They show what great, talented and positive young people we have in Haringey."
