At the Grass Roots organised event, hosted by TV presenters Michael Underwood and Gabby Logan, the winners of each skill category were presented with medals.

The UK picked up a total of 13 medals – five of them gold.

As previously reported in Event, WorldSkills London was the world's largest international skills competition and took place at Excel London.

More than 150,000 visitors were expected to attend the four-day event, but the final figure was nearer 200,000.
