A CLAY shooter who is hoping to blast her way through the competition at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janerio has been inspiring youngsters at Holyrood Academy in Chard.

Abbey Burton won a World Cup gold medal in 2012 and a European silver, and was crowned World Champion last year.

Abbey, who lives near Wellington, got into the sport at 14 and the visit was arranged through Sport Relief as Holyrood is one of the top fundraisers in the region.
