Leeds Athletes return home from the London 2012 Paralympic Games

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:
