The show went on at Torrington Terror Triathlon despite wind and rain halting cycling section.

The cycling section of the Torrington Terror Triathlon had to be cancelled on Sunday due to heavy rain and strong gusts of wind.

But it didn’t stop 64 athletes powering through - with Great Britain Athlete James Anderson, of Team Buff UK, taking the lead.
