Two Greenmount College students have won bronze medals at the Chelsea Flower Show for their stunning floral creations.

Natalie Straney from Killyleagh and Shannon Ormandy from Ballymena took home the medals after reaching the finals of the Young Chelsea Florist of the Year Competition.

They had been asked to create a carnival headdress for a man - and the results were impressive.

"I've loved competing at Chelsea and winning a medal has been the icing on the cake for me," said Shannon (20).

"The teaching team at Greenmount have been inspirational and I've had great support from Vintage Rose Florists, Randalstown, where I work."

Natalie (19) said: "To reach the final and have my design showcased at Chelsea was a dream come true, but I still can't believe I'm home with a Chelsea medal."
