Earlston High School pupil Callum McDonald has become the third member of his family to be awarded a judo black belt.

The sixth-form student joins brother Andrew and dad Ian, who have also achieved the grade in recent years.

All three started as beginners at Sportif Judo and both Callum and older brother Andrew went on to become Scottish and British champions.

Coach Peter Gardiner told The Southern: “Callum, Andrew and Ian’s success demonstrates very well what can be achieved with effort and commitment.”
