A Staveley father and son came away with a combined six medals from the English ITF Taekwondo Championships.

Andrew Cobley, 46, and 15-year-old son, Aaron, both competed in all four disciplines of the sport - sparring, patterns, special technique and destruction.

Mr Cobley, senior, won gold in patterns and sparring before maintaining his dominance in destruction, where he smashed his way to gold once more.

Aaron, of Netherthorpe School, took gold in patterns and sparring - for a successive year - and silver in destruction in his age.
