Midlands Paralympians say there's been 'a big rise' in interest in Paralympic sports after London 2012

The square outside the new library in Birmingham was turned into a place where members of the public could try out several Paralympic sports today, and it saw big interest as two local Paralympians were on hand to share some tips and talk about their experiences.

Dan Greaves from Leicestershire said his local club has seen a big jump in the number of people wanting to get involved with his sport - the discus.

Mickey Bushell from Shrewsbury was there to help those trying out his sport - the wheelchair sprint - and also spoke of his pride in the amount of young people taking up Paralympic sport.
