Mark Cavendish has won stage four of the Tour of Britain cycling race, with fellow Briton Sir Bradley Wiggins remaining top of the general classification.
Today's route was a punishing 117 miles, starting in Stoke-on-Trent and coming into Wales via Wrexham.
It then crossed the region through Flintshire, Denbighshire and Conwy, with the finish line at Llanberis.
Omega Pharma-Quickstep rider Cavendish triumphed in a bunch sprint at the end of a challenging day.
Wiggins, meanwhile, who powered his way to the gold jersey with a dominant performance in the stage three time trial, finished in the peloton to stay in front with four stages to go.
