Johnson-Thompson wants Glasgow gold

Rising heptathlon star Katarina Johnson-Thompson tells BBC News at Six it is her dream to secure gold at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The 21-year-old Liverpudlian goes into the Games as England's top heptathlete, in the absence of Olympic gold medallist Jessica Ennis-Hill, who will miss the event due to pregnancy.

Victory at the prestigious Hypo-Meeting in Gotzis in June put Johnson-Thompson third on the all-time list of female British heptathletes, behind Ennis-Hill and Denise Lewis.

BBC News at Six is running a series of profiles on Commonwealth Games athletes this week. Scotland shooter Jennifer McIntosh features on Tuesday's programme.
