Witham’s Deta Hedman loses in world darts final

NUMBER one seed Deta Hedman has lost in the final of the BDO World Professional Darts Championhips, after being defeated 2-1 by Russian Anastasia Dobromyslova.

Hedman, from Witham, started off on the front foot, taking the first set but the Russian hit back to leave the match on a knife-edge at one set each, despite Hedman being one game away from the title at one stage.

Dobromyslova turned on the style to clinch her second world title despite a valiant effort from the 52-year-old.
