What a great winter games for ParalympicsGB! As the minister of state for disabled people, the games began for me at the first ever lighting of the Heritage Flame at Stoke Mandeville.
The Heritage Flame celebrates the UK’s unique place in the Games’ history as the birthplace of the Paralympic movement, and it remains lit during the games.
I am absolutely delighted with the ParalympicsGB result. We came away with one gold, three silvers and two bronze medals, finishing 10th in the medal table
