Musician wins national praise

GUITARIST James Bell has come top in a TV talent competition.

The 13-year-old, from Audley – last year's winner of The Sentinel's Bright Young Thing Award – was presented with the Rising Music Star award in the Nickelodeon Fruit Shoot Skills competition.

James beat off competition from a DJ, a drummer and a pianist to clinch the award.

His mum Tina said: "James was presented with his skills award by Pixie Lott. We enjoyed watching it on TV."

The awards were set up to celebrate the accomplishment, talent and dedication of young people across the UK. Winners in six categories were voted for by the public after videos were posted on YouTube.

A spokesman for Nickelodeon said: "James really is the people's champion."
