GREAT Britain's Olympic heroes, including South Devon hockey player Giselle Ansley, enjoyed a parade through Manchester on Monday.

Giselle, 24, from Kingsbridge, who helped Team GB to a gold medal in the women's hockey in Rio, said it was an incredible event and it was good to be reunited with her teammates and the rest of Team GB.

The former Churston Ferrers Grammar School pupil and Paignton Hockey Club member was part of the team that won Britain's first ever gold in the women's hockey.
