The 22-year-old’s selection fore the Games, ahead of higher-ranked compatriots, caused controversy earlier this summer, but the Truro-based competitor is hoping to lay down a marker for the 2016 Olympics in Rio. “We’re all very aware that it’s fantastic to be selected but we’ve also got a job to do and we’re still focussed on that very much,” she said.

I write in response to Edwina Abrook’s letter (August 29). I wish to put across my views and that of my mother on the Hilperton relief road. Many residents in this area enjoyed walking this little bit of countryside we had left in suburbia. My elderly mother who lives within walking distance of these fields, and is one of the many who walked them regularly with her dog, is saddened to lose these beautiful fields. − Mrs G Curtis, TrowbridgeSad at loss of fields
I concur with the letter by Ginny Sherman, Wiltshire Times Letters September 5, Consultation Sham. Far too many people in Wiltshire do not know about this consultation because they have not been contacted. By chance I saw a small piece in the Wiltshire Times on Friday, and then made a visit to the Wiltshire Council website. − Peter Collins, TrowbridgeI agree, it’s a sham
