The NOCN Group Award for Intermediate Apprentice of the Year Award was handed to the teen this afternoon (September 11) at Newmarket Racecourse.

Joshua is an 'intermediate apprentice' in barbering, currently working at the independent barbers in his hometown of Ely.

A spokesman for Milan said: "His decision to take a barbering apprenticeship was, in part, down to his school tutor - who pushed him to see the profession as a valuable career.

"During his apprenticeship, Joshua has quickly become an integral part of the business, managing the shop floor and building up a strong base of clientele in his short time working."
