Paralympic cauldron lit at Stormont

A cauldron has been lit at Northern Ireland's seat of government to mark the Paralympic Games taking place in London.

Former Paralympian Angela Hendra MBE lit the cauldron in front of Stormont.

She has won medals at four Paralympic Games between 1972 and 1984 - three silver and three bronze for table tennis and one gold medal for bowls.

She told the BBC that she knew it would "keep burning long after it's extinguished after the Paralympic Games."
