A HIGH flying gymnast spent the day teaching youngsters the ropes.

Steven Lee, a former member of the British gymnastics team, spent the day at Harwich Community Primary School as part of a week of half-term holiday activities.

Mr Lee, who took up gymnastics aged eight and has competed in Poland, Germany and Bulgaria, spent time teaching the children a variety of exercises they could do on their own at home or at school.

He then showed off his gymnastic skills in a special demonstration.
