English judoka Ben Fletcher has been forced to withdraw from the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow after suffering a knee injury.

Fletcher, 22, a recent gold medallist at the British Open, had been due to compete in the under-100kgs class.

"I will not be competing due to a knee injury I suffered at a training camp in Spain last week," Fletcher said.

Danny Williams, from Shrewsbury, has been called up as a replacement in the under-73kgs class.

Fletcher's sister Megan is also in the squad in the under-70kgs class.
