There have been more Paralympic medals for Great Britain on day two - most of them in the Velodrome.

Mark Colbourne took cycling gold in the C1 3km individual pursuit, a day after winning silver in the 1km time trial.

There was silver AND bronze in the C3 individual pursuit from Shaun McKeown and Darren Kenny.

Aileen McGlynn won silver in the women's B 1km time trial. McGlynn is visually impaired so rides in a tandem led by a 'pilot' - Helen Scott.

Ex-RAF serviceman Jon-Allan Butterworth also won silver in the C4/C5 1km individual time trial.

But in the same event, his teammate Jody Cundy was controversially disqualified after problems starting.
