Flint Castle was lit up in gold last night in honour of the town’s Olympic hero Jade Jones.

The golden finale capped off a memorable evening of celebrations in the Flintshire town which included a firework display at the castle.

Earlier the crowds had turned out to catch a glimpse of Jade as she appeared on the town hall balcony following a civic reception before being paraded in an open top bus.

Jade – who won her second gold at the Rio Olympics in the women’s Olympic medallist in -57kg taekwondo, already has the local leisure centre named after her and a postbox painted gold in her honour following her London 2012 win.
