UK fridge engineer takes Bronze in World Skills

Stuart Millar, the UK’s candidate in refrigeration and air conditioning at the WorldSkills11 competition, has brought home a bronze medal from the event, this year held in London

Mr Millar, from Loughgall in Northern Ireland, works for A&N Shilliday and Co, and won the British SkillFridge title last year.

There were more honours for building services, as Shane Trevitt of Bailey Building Services brought home the gold in the plumbing and heating competition. His score was the third highest amongst the 1,000 young people from all countries taking part in the whole WorldSkills event.

The UK achieved 5th place overall in the medals table, behind Korea, Japan, Switzerland and Brazil.
