Beckii Cruel: Isle of Man schoolgirl is anime star

Isle of Man schoolgirl Beckii Cruel makes it big in Japan

When Manx teenager Rebecca Flint created her first webpage at four she had no idea where it would take her.

The 14-year-old, who loves dancing in the style of anime characters from Japan, later started recording and posting her performances online.

The results have attracted interest from fans, agents and television stations across Japan.

Beckii is now preparing to launch her first album in a country where her looks and style have brought her fame.
