BARNSTAPLE twins Nicole and Hayley Williams may be amongst the deadliest in the country.

The twins, 15, recently travelled to Paignton for a week-long karate training camp with the Karate Union of Great Britain – and both returned with black belts.

The pair, who both train at Barnstaple Shotokan Karate Club, have trained hard together to reach their goal.

The twins had to face off against each other at the South West Championships, meeting in the final of the girls’ kumite.

After a well-fought bout, it was Hayley who came away with the gold and Nicole with the silver medal.

Mark Blanche, who has trained the youngsters at the club, said he and everyone at the club were very proud of their achievements.
