"It's a bit spooky to win my seventh title on the seventh of the seventh 2007!" Tweddle said. "I was really happy with how things went today. I made the decision to alter my second floor tumble just to help my foot and make sure I didn't injure it before the Worlds, but everything else was fine."

Tweddle led a Liverpool romp, with clubmates Hannah Clowes, Aisling Williams and Melanie Roberts finishing second, third and fourth, respectively.

"Winning this year has been made even more special as Liverpool as a club did really well," Tweddle said.

In the event finals held Sunday, Tweddle competed uneven bars only, winning that event with a 16.350 (7.1 A-score). Other titlists were Marissa Wing (fifth all-around) on vault, Clowes on balance beam and Kayleigh Cooke (ninth all-around) on floor exercise.

Becky Downie (Notts) defended her junior all-around title, competing a double-twisting Yurchenko on vault. Rebecca Wing (Heathrow) finished second ahead of Laura Jones (Notts).

"I'm really, really pleased it felt good out there today, there was quite a bit of waiting around at first but once we got started I really enjoyed it," said Downie, who is eligible to compete at the world championships in September.

In finals Downie won vault and uneven bars, and finished second on floor exercise. Jones won balance beam and Wing won floor exercise.
