Berkshire judo fighter wins gold

A judo fighter who trained in Berkshire has won gold in the women's under 70kg judo event.

Megan Fletcher trained hard at the Pinewood Judo Club in Wokingham and says her win is a great tribute to her coach, Don Werner, who died in December.

After badly injuring her nose in the semi-final, the 24-year-old battled on to win the final against New Zealand's Moira de Villiers.
