Local sporting heroes honoured in Horsforth

Olympic triathlon stars Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee returned to a warm welcome in their home town of Horsforth today to open a new community centre named after them and local paralympic hero David Stone.

The brothers, who took gold and bronze at the London games, rode into town to meet fans and supporters. It's hoped the centre will encourage more youngsters to get involved in sport especially cycling. And it comes just a day after it was announced Yorkshire will host stages of the Tour de France.
