England was a strong contender for the GB squad

Oxford City athlete Hannah England has missed out on selection for the World Championships in Berlin.

England, 22, finished third in the 1500m at the UK Championships earlier this month and had been hoping to earn a place in the Great Britain squad.

Charlene Thomas and Steph Twell, who both finished ahead of England at the UK Championships, have been selected for the 1500m event.

Lisa Dobriskey has been selected as the third member of the team.

Fellow Oxford athlete Nathan Douglas has been included in the squad and will compete in the triple jump.

Tokyo-based Marathon runner Mara Yamauchi, who was born in Oxford, will miss the championships this summer due to injury.
