Britain’s local and regional newspapers have been on their mettle as the medals flowed for Team GB at London 2012.
Daily and weekly newspapers have been swift to highlight the success of their local heroes with a series of stunning front pages.
They included a wraparound front and back page by The Cornishman featuring gold medal winning rowers Heather Stanning and Helen Glover, who is originally from Penzance.
Cornishman editor Jacqui Walls said: “It was such a monumental achievement by a local girl who only took up rowing four years ago and is extremely well known and well respected in the Penzance area. We really wanted to do her and her family proud.
“The paper has already had a fantastic reaction on the streets of west Cornwall, with many of our readers really appreciating the effort we have gone to in order to celebrate this historic gold medal win.”
Here’s a selection of some of the best front pages we have seen so far. If you have a medal-winner on your patch and would like your front page featured here, send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
