'The tear-sodden juddering climax'
Britain's Olympic and Paralympic athletes have been honoured with a flypast over Buckingham Palace, after a victory parade through London.
Thousands of spectators have lined the Mall, the day after the end of the London 2012 Paralympics.
London Mayor Boris Johnson told the gathered athletes: "You brought this country together. You routed the doubters and for the first time in living memory, you caused Tube passengers to break into spontaneous conversation."
