Woman, 22, shortlisted as high street butcher of the year

A 22-year-old woman has found herself the only woman shortlisted in this year's Premier Young Butcher of the Year.

It's the second year running that Elsie Yardley, who works as a butcher in Halstead, Essex, has made the final of the national competition.

When she tells people about her career choice, she says she gets some strange reactions.

"No-one is really negative about it, they just find it unusual," she said.

"They find it strange and think it's a bit weird but I enjoy it."
