Lizzy Yarnold has been withdrawn from the second World Cup Skeleton event in Canada following medical advice. The Bath-trained slider suffered dizziness during her victory in the season's opening event at Lake Placid last Friday.

With athletes travelling at 120km/hour and with forces of as much as 5G such symptoms are not uncommon, according to a statement on the British Skeleton website.

“I’m naturally disappointed not to be able to race on Friday. I enjoyed getting back into the mindset last week and winning.

“I felt dizzy at the end of the first run in Lake Placid but felt okay before the second run and knew that I could go for it but in our sport where we are travelling at such high speeds these things happen and we have to look after ourselves.

“I’m going to spend the time over Christmas resting so that I can come back stronger in 2015”.

The World Cup circuit moves to Europe early in the New Year with Altenberg, Konigsee and St Moritz all hosting events in the overall series in January.

Police find evidence of cannabis in exploded flat

Police investigating an explosion at a flat in Taunton have found evidence of cannabis being grown inside.

Crews were called to a flat in Gaunton Close late on Friday night. They rescued a man who is being treated for burns in hospital. When it was safe to do so, police searched the flat and recovered 12 large plants and lights and a tent thought to be associated with the cultivation of the illegal drug.

In an area of the flat in Gaunton Close which was safe to search we found and seized 12 large plants, 6 seedlings and about an ounce of dried vegetable matter, all believed to be cannabis. We also seized what are believed to be lights and a tent associated with the growing of cannabis plants, and enquiries are continuing.”
