Britain's youngest female crane operator towers above her peers

Proud Mia Allen literally towers above her peers - after qualifying as Britain's youngest crane operator. Mia, 20, has followed in the footsteps of her dad Mark who trained her to work at the docks at Immingham, Lincs. And after starting work as a port operative last year, the high flyer worked her way up the ranks and is now a tier three crane operator for Associated British Ports. Mia spends much of her 12 hour shifts 110ft in the air loading and unloading cargo ships that arrive at the port, where Mark holds the record for 76 movements in an hour. She said: “It’s something that I would never have imagined I’d end up doing for work, but I’m glad I have because I love it.”
