The seven painters, decorators, carpenters, plumbers and electricians were top performers among the 36 apprentices working for Barking and Dagenham Council contractor, Enterprise.

Each one received a certificate with £50 B&Q vouchers, with £25 for the runners-up.

Michael Daly won a shield as the best overall, and walked away with £150 of vouchers.

Cllr Liam Smith, Deputy Council Leader, said: "I'm very proud to see our youngsters not only achieving this great success, but giving themselves choices throughout their lives by learning a skilled trade."

Martin Joyce, Managing Director of Enterprise, added: "Broadening the skills of young people, especially from the local area, provides a solid base for sustainable development. Training requires commitment, and the awards allow these people to get the recognition they deserve.
