Telford welcomes home Gold Medalist Mickey Bushell

Paralympic Gold Medalist Mickey Bushell is back in his hometown of Telford.

The 22 year old has been honoured with a gold postbox just yards from his front door. The local council have also painted one of their mobility buses gold to mark Mickey's achievement. 

He told Heart, 'It [The Paralympics] has been fantastic this year, we've really showcased what paralympians can do, a lot of people watched it and it's been inspiring I think. We smashed our medal total as well. The parade was amazing, there were a lot more people than I expected, the amount of support we all got was fantastic and we had Mo Farrah on our float as well which was great.'
