Andrew Simpson: Tributes for Olympic sailor


Tributes have been paid to the British Olympic gold medallist Andrew Simpson, who has died in a training accident.

Simpson, 36, won gold in the Star class with Iain Percy at the 2008 Olympics and silver at last year's Games.

Known as Bart, he was killed when the catamaran he was aboard capsized during training for the America's Cup.

Duncan Kennedy reports from Weymouth.
