British Paralympic swimming champion Ellie Simmonds says the Paralympics has seen "a positive change" in attitudes towards disabled people.
The double gold medal winner was speaking one year on from the games after charities questioned its legacy following a survey which suggests life has not improved for disabled adults in the UK.
She said: "Every person I speak to has seen it as such a positive thing."
