A HEREFORD taekwondo fighter came back from a recent trip to Northern Ireland with a haul of medals.

It was the first time Ben Hargraves had travelled to Belfast and he came back with a trio of medals, winning gold in hand destruction and tag teams while taking silver in the black belt patterns division.

Hargreaves has had a great year so far, being selected to represent Wales and coming away with a bronze medal at the recent World Championships.

Anybody interested in taking up taekwondo in Hereford is urged to ring Master David Sheppard 7th Dan on 07966 429392.
