Dunblane's joy at historic Andy Murray US Open victory

Dunblane is celebrating after local hero Andy Murray won a historic victory in the US Open - the first British man to win a singles Grand Slam championship for 76 years.

The Scot - the new world number three - ended Djokovic's title defence and 27-match hard-court winning run at majors, beating him 7-6 (12-10), 7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2 in four hours 54 minutes.

Local people were quick to congratulate Murray, with one commenting that "no-one deserves it more than him".
