Louis Smith wasn’t the only Peter­bor­ough lad to win sil­ver in Rio. For­mer Or­ton Longueville school­boy Nick Dempsey picked one up too. Wind­surfer Nick learned his trade at Ferry Mead­ows and the city should recog­nise his achieve­ments too. But when the PT tweeted that he and Louis should be given the free­dom of the city he was a bit puz­zled.He replied: “That’s in­ter­est­ing, thought I was given it on re­turn­ing from the Syd­ney Olympics!!’’ We checked with the city coun­cil and no he wasn’t. So don’t try driv­ing your sheep through Cathe­dral Square just yet, Nick!
