Bradford on Avon woke up to a golden post box this morning (Sunday) to honour the Olympic achievements of the town’s kayak king Ed McKeever who scooped top spot in the K1 200m at Eton Dorney yesterday.

Former St Laurence student McKeever, 28, dominated the kayak final yesterday taking gold with a winning time of 36.246 seconds adding the Olympic honour to his 2010 world and European titles.

Residents of the town, which has McKeever banners and bunting lining the streets, turned out in force to see Royal Mail staff paint the post box in The Shambles to honour Team GB’s 26th gold medal winner of the 2012 Games.
