Britain's most successful Winter Paralympic team in 30 years has arrived at London's Heathrow Airport.

The team won six medals in total, including a first ever gold, thanks to Kelly Gallagher (far right) and her guide Charlotte Evans, in the super G.

Jade Etherington (left) and her guide Caroline Powell, took bronze in the same competition and won a whopping three silver medals in the visually impaired downhill, slalom and super combined.

GB's wheelchair curling team, Aileen Neilson, Gregor Ewan, Jim Gault, Bob McPherson, and Angie Malone took bronze.

There are now calls for more UK funding to help create future winter Paralympic stars.
