Parlaympian swimmer Stephanie Millward this morning described her home town's turnout as 'unbelievable' at the start of a parade in her honour. The five-times medallist at London 2012 was speaking before receiving the Honorary Freedom of the Parish of Corsham.

Stephanie told ITV News Westcountry: "It shows the support that they've always had in me. They've been behind me the whole way. I went to school here and it's an honour that everyone has come out today."

The swimmer, who was diagnosed with mutiple sclerosis at the age of 17, said she wanted to inspire other people and to encourage them not to give up.

" I've beaten MS, nothing can stop me, you can do anything if you believe in yourself", she said.
