Glasgow 2014: Boxer Fred Evans 'harshly done by'

One of the heads of Team Wales at the Commonwealth Games has spoken of his frustration after Olympic silver medal-winning boxer Fred Evans was forced to pull out after having his accreditation refused.

In April the welterweight was ordered to pay a total of £1,228 in fines and costs after admitting his part in a nightclub assault in Birmingham.

Team officials are assuming this conviction was picked up in the accreditation and security clearance process.

Brian Davies, Chef de mission for Team Wales, said Evans could feel harshly done by.
