Rugby fans in the region were able to get a close up view of the World Cup today. The trophy was on on display in the Guildhall in Exeter, and later at Sandy Park, home of the Exeter Chiefs. The ground will host some of the matches in next year's World Cup. Steve Hardy reports.
A Plymouth based former Royal Marine has won four gold medals at the Invictus Games. Joe Townsend, who's based at Hasler Company, won the medals in the 100m, 200m, 400m and 1500m in the Men's Wheel IT4 category.
The Invictus Games are for injured service men and women from around the world. They finish in London at the weekend.
I knew that if I did well in the 100m I’d do well throughout. After the first event this morning I was pretty confident. I saw the last guy on the finishing straight of the 1500m and had in mind if I don’t lap him I’ve not done my job. It’s great to be in the team; I’m competing for my country in the sporting field now, not the battlefield.
The Rugby World Cup comes to Exeter tomorrow (Saturday). The Webb Ellis Cup will be on display at Exeter’s Guildhall and at Sandy Park, one of the 13 venues for Rugby World Cup 2015.
The visit comes as up to one million tickets go on general sale for all 48 matches at Rugby World Cup 2015. This includes tickets for Tonga v Namibia, Namibia v Georgia and Italy v Romania which will both be played at Sandy Park. People can have their picture taken with the Webb Ellis Cup Trophy at the Guildhall on the High Street from 10.00am until 12noon.
The Trophy will then make the short journey across the city to Sandy Park to celebrate the reopening of the stadium after it’s summer re-development. Fans attending the Exeter Chiefs’ first home game of the season against Leicester Tigers will also be able to see the Trophy and have their picture taken with it, between 1pm and 3pm.
Having the Webb Ellis Cup in Exeter for such an exciting day was a too big to miss. The development work that has taken place at Sandy Park over the summer has been outstanding and Exeter is very proud to have such a forward thinking Rugby club within the city.
Sir Bradley Wiggins said the "crowds were fantastic" as he cycled through Devon in Stage 5 of the Tour of Britain.
We caught up with the cyclist after the race which saw him fall to sixth place overall:
Thousands of people turned out to watch the Tour of Britain cyclists arrive in Exeter yesterday - and one of them got more than he bargained for.
