A team of roller derby girls have paired their skates with socks to help raise awareness of Down’s syndrome.

The South West Angels of Terror, or SWAT, were inspired to take part in the ‘lots of socks’ initiative for World Down Syndrome Day by a special visitor – one-month-old Lucas Walton, son of team member Sophie Walton, from Topsham.

Lucas was diagnosed with Down’s syndrome at birth, and so the players donned the knee-high stripy socks to show their support.

Team member Kimberly Rainford said the girls would be doing more to help the cause in future, as it was now very close to their hearts.
