An apprentice barber who switched to the profession after initially training as a mechanic has had the decision vindicated.

Darryl Clampitt, who works three days a week at Kings Road Barbers in Bury St Edmunds, has won the Top Barber award from WS Hair Academy in Ipswich.

The 20-year-old, from Whepstead, had to compete in a ‘suited and booted’ themed challenge at the academy, which he attends, on Monday and came out on top.

“It was quite unexpected as all the other barbers were so good,” said Darryl, who has been cutting hair for two years.

“I was a trainee mechanic before, but was always around friends who were barbers.

“I was always very artistic at school.”
