Somerset shooter scoops Olympic bronze

Taunton shooter and part-time farmer Ed Ling has scooped a bronze medal in the men's trap shooting at the Rio Olympics.

It's the third medal for Team GB. It follows Swindon's Jazz Carlin's silver medal win.

The 33-year-old shooter beat David Kostelecky from the Czech Republic 13-9. But Ling, from Somerset, won't be hanging around for long as he's straight on the plane back home to harvest.

No matter the outcome, Ed's having to catch a flight back home to Taunton straight after the competition to make it back for the harvest - he's a farmer by day.
