A world-ranked squash ace has been giving pupils at her old school in Lympstone expert tips.

Victoria Temple Murray, 18, from Ottery St Mary, returned to Lympstone Preparatory School after wining the Women’s European Junior U19 Championship in Zurich, Switzerland in March.

She took time out to revisit St Peter’s where she started learning the basics of the game a decade ago.

Tory, who is world number one in her age group, passed on advice to boys and girls at the preparatory school, which has its own academy.

She was full of praise for the coaching that she had at the school from Mike Densham, and, having represented England for two years, is now determined to make a big impact the senior ranks.
