Penzance welcomes home its Olympic champion.

Rower Helen Glover will parade through the streets in an open top bus on Sunday to mark her medal winning moment.
Helen and partner Heather Stanning were the first members of Team GB to strike gold at the games.

After the parade there will be a private reception at her old school, Humphry Davy where she will meet up with old friends, teachers and team mates.

Head Bill Marshall said:

"There's no denying we've had students come up to us afterwards and said how much encouragement they've taken from seeing someone who's come from the same background as them, big fish in a small pond even, but they can see that people can go on and do fantastic things"

"One of the things that Helen has drawn on is very much around knowing that in the background there are all those people in the local community who are there cheering her on, supporting her, being there for her and that's what's so special about our local community. That we're in there for each other. The one and all idea throughout Cornwall"
