A little girl followed in her mum and aunt’s footsteps to read 100 books within a year.

Beth Conway, like Kate and Cathy before her, completed the Book Track challenge with a focus on stories about witches and unicorns.

The West Hill Primary School pupil picked up her award at Sidmouth Library on Monday.

Mum Kate said: “My sister and I both did it when we were growing up in the Lake District. She’s following in a family tradition – she’s quite keen to be like me and her auntie.

“Beth likes the Worst Witch and Titchy Witch series, and she also likes unicorns.
