One of Cumbria's athletes is celebrating after winning a gold medal at the commonwealth games in Australia.

Nick Miller, from Scotby in Carlisle, set a British and Commonwealth record in the hammer, throwing over eighty metres, the first time a British athlete has done so.

The 24-year-old , who was a silver medalist in Glasgow four years ago, described the feeling of winning the Gold as 'incredible' and said having his family in the crowd was a 'special moment'.

It is the result of a lot of hard work between me and my coach. It has all paid off in the end.

It is just incredible to win the gold; it is such a special moment for me as my family are in the crowd; they will be more pleased that I threw over 80m."
