Paralympic gold medal winning swimmer Ellie Simmonds has been honoured with a place on Birmingham's Broad Street Walk of Stars.

Ms Simmonds was presented with her star at Edgbaston Cricket Ground and said the honour felt "so good".

The swimmer joins the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Noddy Holder and Jasper Carrot as having stars on Broad Street.
