Olympic double-gold medalist Charlotte Dujardin will have a street named after her, Enfield Council has revealed.

It said a new 38-property street in Ponders End, which was granted planning permission earlier this month, would be named Dujardin Mews in her honour.

Dujardin, who was born in the borough, won individual and team dressage gold medals at the 2012 Games.

Councillor Chris Bond, the council's environment lead, said the authority had been waiting for a while for a suitable road to name after the sportswoman.

“We're enormously proud of her achievements and she is a terrific role model for all the young people in Enfield who want to achieve great things in life,” she said.

Dujardin said she was “overwhelmed” by the decision.

“My roots are in Enfield and now I will always have a pesence there - I feel humbled,” she said.
