After a banner celebrating Bishop Auckland Olympic gymnast Amy Tinkler was stolen, Heart's replaced it!

Paul Anderson, trustee at her gymnastics club, originally had a banner made for her return, but it was stolen.
Heart's Justin and Kelly heard about it and decided to get a new one made up for her!
Welcome home Amy!
UPDATED 23rd August 2016, 7am
16 year old Amy Tinkler from Bishop Auckland, who won bronze at Rio 2016, is back in the North East later - but a banner marking her homecoming has been taken.
Her gymnastics club, South Durham Gymnastics posted on Facebook:
"With only hours to go until our Olympic Medallist Amy Tinkler arrives home it's with great sadness that some thieves have taken down the banner we had put up on Bracksfarm roundabout at the entrance to Amy's estate!!!
We were very excited for Amy to see how much the town was getting behind her and would like to ask anyone who perhaps knows the whereabouts of the sign to kindly return it before midnight!!!
If you have taken it as a souvenir then please take it back and perhaps we could arrange for it to be signed and given back to you once Amy has returned home!!
