Wrexham ready to welcome African olympians

Pupils at the Maelor School hope the athletes from Lesotho will pay them a visit during the games.

The team from the African county are going to carry out their pre-games training camp in the North Wales town.

The announcement builds on the existing links between the town and the country, as the Maelor School in Penley and St Saviour's High School in Leribe, Lesotho have been working together for a number of years.

Heart's Andy Downton has been down to the school to see what they do.
