A Jersey teenager chosen to represent the island at Buckingham Palace has described her visit to the royal residence as "amazing".

Sophie Rolland, 16, attended a Young Achievers' reception as St John Ambulance's Cadet of the Year.

Miss Rolland, who attends Hautlieu school, met Princess Anne, who is a patron of the charity.

She described the visit and meeting the Princess Royal as "something I'll never forget."

She said representing St John Ambulance was an honour.

Miss Rolland was one of 120 people to be invited to the Young Achievers' event.

Her invitation was given to mark the contributions young people make to the St John Ambulance charity.

Christine Gavey, of St John Ambulance Jersey, said: "The reception is a great way for us to recognise the commitment and outstanding work of these young people."

"Sophie has been an asset to her local community all year round."
