Baroness Grey-Thompson on the legacy of London 2012

Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson talks to David Wood about the legacy of the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.

"I think the biggest part of the legacy was participation, and changing young people's minds as to what they could do" she says.

"Not just in sport, but in terms of art and culture. That was always going to be the hardest thing. The Games were amazing, and you're bound to get a spike in participation in the two weeks afterwards".

"It's how you maintain that, not just for six months but for a year and several years down the line".
