Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle is hoping a trip to Cornwall will help keep the London 2012 legacy alive.

The bronze medallist is visiting Newquay, St Austell and Launceston to launch a new children's training course.

She has been showing off her skills to inspire future generations: "I just wanted to give every child the opportunity to have a go at gymnastics. I've had so many opportunities with my gymnastics career, so if I can put a smile on one child's face and let them try this amazing sport then that's my job done.

"You find a lot of the gym clubs around the country have got waiting lists and I just wanted to take that pressure away from the gym clubs. So, if we can set up in the leisure centres; and obviously the Gym Stars programme is for basic, basic gymnastics so they can just have a go at it."
