The 2013 SkillPLUMB competition has named 22-year-old Michael Yuile as the North's best young plumber following a challenging one-day event at Burnley College.

Of his win, Yuile said: “I couldn’t quite believe it when I heard my name. You’re never sure how well you’ve done so I’m over the moon to have won. And to know I’m the best in the North is an added bonus! Well done to all the other lads as well, and thank you to Warrington College and my employer Cheshire Building Contractors for their help.”
