Formula 1 fan Will Garside met one of his idols on Thursday, former world champion Lewis Hamilton.

The driver, who was in the region for the British Grand Prix in Silverstone, visited Fawsley Hall where the 14-year-old’s parents work.

On meeting his idol, Will said: “It’s one of those things where you wake up the next morning and think ‘did that really happen?’ It was like a dream come true. He’s a hero of mine.”

The student, from Lang Farm, Daventry, also chatted about his plans to go to Silverstone University Technical College.
