A poster urging people in North Wales to 'support Team England' at the Commonwealth Games has been taken down and replaced by a drinks advert.

The image, at a bus stop in Rhos-on-Sea in Conwy, featured English Paralympic athlete Jade Jones and was accompanied by the hashtag #GoEngland - despite Wales competing at Glasgow 2014 in its own right.

The 23-year old from Bridgend was unable to add another gold medal to the one he won at the Paralympic Games in London two years ago.

However, his silver means that Team Wales have now won 20 medals at this years Games - surpassing the total achieved by the team at Delhi four years ago.

That now equals the number of medals Wales managed to achieve at the Delhi Games four years ago - and puts them just eight shy of the pre-Games target of 27.

After a tight start it was a relatively comfortable win for the trio of Jonathan Tomlinson, Marc Wyatt and Paul Taylor, who beat Australia 16-13.

Commonwealth Games backers have confirmed they are investigating a giant poster on the North Wales seafront, which reads 'Proud to support Team England'.

The image, at Rhos-on-Sea in Conwy, features English Paralympic athlete Jade Jones and is accompanied by the hashtag #GoEngland - despite Wales competing at Glasgow 2014 in its own right.

SSE and its supply brands, including SSE SWALEC, are proud supporters of Glasgow 2014 and the four home nations, Team Wales, Team England, Team Scotland and Team Northern Ireland.

We are concerned about the placement of this advert and will work with the media owner to investigate.
