Jessica Ennis puts on encouraging display in Manchester
British Olympic favourite Jessica Ennis has continued her comeback from injury with a good showing in the Northern Athletics Outdoor Championships.
In the long jump, the world and European heptathlon champion beat runner-up Alexandra Russell by four centimetres with a jump of 6.24 metres.
Ennis threw 44.81 metres in the javelin to finish second behind Hayley Thomas.
An ankle tendon injury saw 25-year-old Ennis miss seven weeks of full training earlier this year.
