A Fenland fashion student has won a prestigious competition after she designed a pair of gloves fit for the Queen.

It is hoped the design by Liz Foicik, 35, from March, could be manufactured at a later date, and a copy of the design has been sent to the Royal household.

Miss Foicik, a student at the Isle Campus of the College of West Anglia, scooped top prize in this year's National Student Glove Design Competition organised by the British Glove Association (BGA).

She is a second-year student on the BTEC National Diploma course in fashion and clothing.
