Ossett woman Joan Brunt has knitted her own cycling jerseys and put them on display in her window to celebrate the Tour De France.

Mrs Brunt, 83, of Eden Avenue, was a member of the Morley Wheelers cycling club from 1948-1953 and wanted to do something to mark the Grand Depart coming to Yorkshire.

She said: “If I had been younger I would have put myself forward as a marshall. I’m an avid knitter so I thought this was the next best thing.

“My friend also has a cottage on the tour route so I knitted her some jumpers to put in her window.”
