Earlier today I went along to meet the Athletes from Leeds, on their return from the London 2012 Paralympic Games.  It was a great reception for them as hundreds of people gathered in Millennium Square in Leeds to welcome their heroes home.  Athletes present today were;

Hurricane Hannah” Cockroft – T34 100m and 200m Wheelchair Sprints – Double Gold medalist.
