OLYMPIANS can enjoy the ultimate ‘home of a hero’ accessory when they return from the Games - thanks to a South Yorkshire firm.

Rotherham-based timber doors and windows specialist Bereco has created a limited edition set of Union Jack door knobs to mark the success of Team GB at London 2012.

The gifts were sent out to key figures involved with Olympic success including athletes and London Mayor Boris Johnson. Boris was so pleased with the symbol of patriotism that he penned a special note of thanks to Bereco.

Oliver Chopping, marketing manager at the firm, said: “It was an idea we had when we were discussing how 2012 is a year for celebrating all things British with the Jubilee and Olympics.

“The Olympics seem to have completely caught the nation’s attention. We hope the door knobs catch on.”
