Town buzz for Olympian's parade

Olympic gold medallist Jade Jones will tour her home town on an open top bus to mark her official homecoming following her success at London 2012.

The 19-year-old from Flint is Team GB's youngest gold medal winner having been crowned champion in taekwondo.

Jones will attend a civic reception at Flint town hall and appear on the balcony at 18:45 BST before boarding the bus 15 minutes later.

The parade ends at the lifeboat station at 19:50 BST with music and fireworks.

Flint mayor Vicky Perfect and Jones' father Gary describe the "buzz" in Flint caused by the Olympic success.
