Former cricketer David 'Syd' Lawrence aims for bodybuilding crown

A former England and Gloucestershire cricketer has carved out a new career for himself in bodybuilding.

David 'Syd' Lawrence is best known for his fast bowling during the 1980s and early 90s until a knee injury ended his cricketing career.

Syd took up bodybuilding after accompanying a friend to a competition.

He has been the best in the West of England for the last three years, but is now setting his sights even higher.

Andy Howard caught up with him in the gym.
