Alan - I think this needs cleaning up as David previously earned a WSC place via the LMI route, for which there is no announcement currently. And I would argue that the results should be a separate news item anyway!?

Additionally the second highest scorer was Neil, who previously earned a WSC place via the UK open event. Or have I got the relative qualification priorities wrong here? And I'm sure there were two WSC places on offer via the UKSC...

If you look at the detail of the qualifying procedure, we no longer work down each route separately, but combine the winners lists into one list which rotates around the different routes. That avoids the risk of getting to the sixth person in one route whilst denying a place to the person who came second in another. In this case, I think the top three places in each route go to the same four people, so the A-team is fairly clear.
