PUPILS at Locking Primary School were paid a visit by a two-time Paralympic silver medal winner.

Michael Roberts won silver in both the javelin and volleyball at the 1976 Paralympic Games in Toronto, Canada.

His grand-daughter Milly Rivers attends the school, and he held a special assembly on June 26 as the school celebrated its own Olympic week.

The week saw pupils undertake a range of Olympic and sporting-themed activities, such as skipping for the British Heart Foundation.
