ASHLEY Hills from Brighton visited the House of Lords after successfully completing an electricity apprenticeship at UK Power Networks.

He was one of 15 UK Power Networks’ apprentices who attended a celebratory event to mark the 100th Trailblazer apprentice to pass their assessments.

Ash specialised in overhead power lines and is now a linesman.

“They have worked hard to meet the high standards which we require.”
