Rising taekwondo star Megan Featherstone has been selected to fight for England.

The 15-year-old Amber Hill resident will compete in the Commonwealth Taekwondo Championships in Edinburgh on November 15, in the junior -59k section.

Megan, who won gold at the British International Open earlier this year, recently fought at the British Nationals in Manchester.

After trailing 3-2 in the first round she levelled things up in the second round.

However, a foot injury in the third and final round saw her miss out 10-3, despite her standing her ground until the end.
