Northern Ireland civil engineering apprentice Tammy Whelan has been named as one of the most influential women in the sector.

The Daily Telegraph listed Tammy in its Top 50 Women in engineering as part of International Women in Engineering Day.

Tammy, originally from Larne, began her career in the armed forces and served in Iraq. She later decided to pursue a Work+ civil engineering apprenticeship at Arup in Belfast.

At Arup, she has worked on environmentally-friendly initiatives, including projects like the Connswater Community Greenway. Tammy said that winning the award had "boosted my confidence in my career".
