Councillors unanimously voted to give Ilkeston’s very own Dave Brailsford the rare honour of Freedom of the Borough this week.

Erewash Borough Council leader Cllr Chris Corbett said: “I was thrilled at our successes in the Olympics but took special pride in that the driving force behind so many medals was a resident of Ilkeston.”

Mr Brailsford led Team GB’s cyclists to a record-breaking Olympics.
