So, let's sum up the evening session...

Britain's Hannah Cockroft won her third gold medal of the World Para-athletics Championships in London on an evening compatriot Georgie Hermitage stormed to victory in world record time.

Cockroft, 24, won the T34 400m, adding to her 100m and 800m titles, with team-mate Kare Adenegan third. Hermitage, 28, comfortably retained the T37 400m crown she won two years ago.

Kyron Duke added a silver to GB's medal tally, while Richard Chiassaro, Stephen Miller and Isaac Towers won bronzes.

That means Britain have won 28 medals, including 13 gold, and are third behind leaders China with 18 golds and the US with 15.

'Dream come true'

Men's club throw F32 - Stephen Miller wins bronze

Time to hear from Stephen Miller, who at the age of 37, has just picked up a bronze medal in the men's club throw F32. The London 2012 Paralympics is the only one of the last six where Miller has not won a medal.

"To be here again at the stadium where it all went wrong in 2012, and I put it right today," Miller told Channel 4. "To get on the podium at this stadium is a dream come true. It is the first time I have been on the World Championships podium since 2011 and you can't describe how good it is to perform in front of this crowd.

"I said before this championships that whatever happens I would continue so I'm hoping to make it to my seventh Paralympics in 2020. It was an OK performance, not my best, but I have a habit of winning medals at championships. A lot of those guys have beaten me this year, I have a lot of work to do to catch the top two, but I believe I have the ability to throw that far and I just have to make it happen.

"GB are the best supported team and the best prepared team and it shows - keep buying the lottery tickets. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and hopefully there is more to come."

World Para-athletics to stay in London?

The boss of this year's London World Para-athletics Championships wants the event to make an immediate return to the city in 2019.

Numerous athletes have called for the event to stay at London Stadium.

More than 230,000 people will attend this year's championships, with more tickets sold than in all eight of the previous championships combined.

"I'd love it back here in two years' time," said Ed Warner, co-chair of London 2017. "This call from the athletes for it to return here has come organically. Athletes from around the world think this is the place to be.

"Can we make it happen? I hope so. I've had some interesting early conversations. I think the door is ajar. The International Paralympic Committee have loved what they've seen."

'Heartbreaking'

Men's 800m T34 - Isaac Towers wins bronze, Ben Rowlings comes sixth

Some quotes now from Ben Rowlings, who came sixth in the men's 800m T34 final, with fellow Brit Isaac Towers taking a bronze medal.

"I am gutted," Rowlings tells BBC Radio 5 live sports extra. "I felt really good up to the last 40 metres and to be that close to winning a medal was heartbreaking. I have to dust myself off and come back. I timed it well, I was boxed in at 500m.

"Isaac is strong, he did it when it mattered, he was better than me on the day and had a stronger finish. If I had to get beaten by anyone it is good it was a Brit. It is the closest either of us have been to winning a race like that. Everything up to the last 40m was perfect, so it is heartbreaking."

'An absolute treat'

He tells BBC Radio 5 live sports extra: "It feels amazing, my distance was not my best but a silver medal, you can't be sad about that.

"It just brings back memories from 2012, I love everyone in the crowd and I can't thank them enough for supporting us. It is just amazing.

"I have to just keep doing what I am doing, more technique, more footwork."

Kare Adenegan, who finished third behind winner Hannah Cockroft, as what happened in the 800m, has also been speaking to BBC Radio 5 live sports extra.

She says: "I'm really pleased to come out with another medal.

"It is always tough racing against Hannah Cockroft, but amazing. The crowd have been so amazing, their cheers got me through that last 100 metres and the crowd really lifted me.

"It is a valuable experience and I have learned a lot about tactics, I just need to work on my strength."

'I felt rough, I've been in bed all day'

Women's 400m T34 - Hannah Cockroft wins gold, Kare Adenegan takes bronze

Three-time 2017 World Para-athletics Championship gold medallist Hannah Cockroft has been talking to BBC Radio 5 live sports extra. She said: "I was confident up until yesterday when I got full of cold and felt rough - I have been in bed all day.

"All the way around I was thinking 'I am not getting this'.

"I know I'm not 100%. The noise tonight is phenomenal, I am going to miss racing here, I want to come back really soon. It is just a massive honour to put this top on and represent my country."

American Alexa Halko, 17 came second, with another Brit, Kare Adenegan, 16, coming third.

"I have two young girls, 16 and 17, who are chasing me down," added Cockroft. "I just want to keep going and still be the best in the world - that is the motivation and I aim to be here a little longer."

And breathe....

Right, let's get some analysis from our BBC Radio 5 live sports extra experts and hear from some of the competitors who have been making the headlines tonight.

Bronze for Miller

Men's club throw F32

Another medal for Great Britain, and it comes from Stephen Miller in the men's club throw F32.

It comes a year after he won a bronze medal at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio.

That is two gold medals and four bronze medals for Great Britain in only an hour.

Duke aims to complete the set

Men's shot put F41 final

Kyron Duke competes in the F41 shot put and first came to prominence at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London, where he also competed in the F40 javelin.

The 24-year-old from Cwmbran has won silver and bronze medals in World Championships, but gold has eluded him so far.

"I have plenty of bronzes and silvers, it's just that one extra shiny one that needs to be added to the collection," said Duke.

"A home games is always extra special. You get to go here, there, everywhere, around the world, but when it's a big competition and it's at home it makes it 100% better."

'As soon as I heard the cheer I knew I had a medal'

Men's 400m T54 - Chiassaro wins bronze

BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Richard Chiassaro has just been talking to BBC Radio 5 live sports extra. He said: "It is amazing to finally come out and do what I can in my favourite event. As soon as I heard the cheer I knew I had got a medal.

"I knew if I stayed in touch within touching distance I could just pick it up in the home straight. Everyone in that race could have won it.

"My son said to me he was feeling nervous, he is only six and I just wanted to win a medal for him. At six he doesn't understand that I don't win every race so it is good for him to see me win a medal.

"I am going to work on being in the bunch and my starts as well. My top speed is better than most of the other guys but I need to work on the starts."

'He took it to another gear'

Men's 400m T54 - Chiassaro wins bronze

Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson

11-time Paralympic champion on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

"In the final bend, Richard Chiassaro was sixth with 120m to go, but then he took it up another gear.

"If you had asked me halfway through it didn't look like he would have a chance of a medal.

"At that moment of racing, he would not have thought of what happened to him in the 800m. In that race he went down really hard, got dragged across the track and got run over by another chair.

"To come back was a really tough challenge and fair play to him for pushing through the line here. That is why you take every single push."

Men's 400m T54

A tough week has a happy ending for Richard Chiassaro as he just about gets a bronze in the men's 400m T54 final, edging out Switzerland's Marcel Hug by two hundredths of a second.

Yassine Gharbi of Tunisia wins gold and Kenny van Weeghel gets silver.

Miller in third at the moment

Men's club throw F32

Meanwhile, over in the men's club throw, Great Britain's Stephen Miller is hoping to hang on to a medal, and at the moment he is bronze medal position.

Miller has had all of his six throws, and his best effort came in the second of those with a throw of 29.25m.

There are only four competitors left, one of them being second-placed Maciej Sochal, who will be hoping to overhaul current leader Lahouari Bahlaz of Algeria.

A perfect ending to a tough week?

Men's 400m T54 (21:05 BST)

It has been a week Britain's Richard Chiassaro will not forget - but for all the wrong reasons at the moment.

He has come fourth in the men's 200m T54, eighth in the 1500m and suffered a spectacular - and painful - crash in the 800m final, which saw him wipe out three competitors and get disqualified for when the race takes place again tomorrow.

Despite all of that, the 35-year-old still has one chance to end the week on a high. Yesterday he battled through the heats and tonight he will be going for glory one last time, in the men's 400m T54 competition.

'He should be really proud'

"That was a really lovely race from Isaac Towers, he was right at the back at the bell, but he did not panic, he should be really proud of that bronze medal and that is a big step up for him. Very measured racing from him."

Another race, another medal for Great Britain, what a half hour it has been.

The latest medal comes from Isaac Towers in the men's 800m T34. He is at the back of the field at the halfway mark, but powers home to snatch a bronze. Great stuff.

Tunisia's Walid Ktila is the gold medallist, with Mohamed Alhammadi of the UAE coming second.

Another Brit, Ben Rowlings just missed out on a medal, coming sixth, just over a second behind Towers.

Some quotes from Georgina Hermitage, who has just taken gold for Great Britain in the women's 400m T37.

She tells BBC Radio 5 live sports extra: "I am relieved, surprised by the time, but all in all relieved. It shows if you do the right amount of cross training it shows you can improve.

"Everyone has been coming home doing well and you sit there like a caged animal thinking 'I want to get on, I want to get on'."

Rowlings and Towers aim for medals

Men's 800m T34 (20:45 BST)

Who fancies some more British medals? Of course you do.

Well, we have two chances of success in the men's 800m T34 race - for athletes with cerebral palsy - with Britain's Ben Rowlings (pictured) and Isaac Towers among the finalists.

Rowlings, 21, picked up three bronze medals in the 2016 European Championships in Italy last year, while 18-year-old Isaac Towers picked up a gold, silver and bronze at the same event - including a gold in the 800m competition.

A phenomenal performance from Georgie, really measured. She had nothing over 400m for her this season and had a really quiet build-up

I thought at one point she would break the magical 60-second mark. She powered away like Christine Ohuruogu style.

She is in tears down there, she can't believe it.

On my way to the stadium this evening I was drawn towards shades of the Tricolor and had a chat with this French family.

It turns out they are the parents of French T37 athlete Laure Ustaritz, who is up against Georgie Hermitage in the 400m tonight.

Her dad wasn't too optimistic about a medal - "maybe" he said.

Hermitage aims for London glory, after London inspiration

Women's 400m T37 (20:35 BST)

Nearly five years ago, Georgina Hermitage was a spectator at the Olympic Stadium watching as Mo Farah won gold in the 5,000m for his second gold of the 2012 London Olympics - and it proved to be a turning point in her life.

She then decided to return to her athletics, a sport she had given up when 14, and her success since then has been incredible.

Hermitage, who has hemiplegia (a form of cerebral palsy that affects her movement on the left hand side of her body), won a World Championship gold in the women's 400m T37 event at Doha two years ago and followed that up with Paralympic golds in the 100m and 400m a year later.

Her time of one minute 0.53 seconds set in that 400m final in Rio remains a world record.

"I never thought after being out injured for three months I'd get to the World Championships let alone come fifth in the final. I'm only 23 but I'm glad I can move along with it."

British trio aim for medals

Women's 400m T34 (20:25 BST)

There are high hopes for a home gold in the final of the next event, the women's 400m T34, as three of the six finalists - Kare Adenegan, Hannah Cockroft and Carly Tait - are British.

Cockroft's best time this season of 57.73 seconds is more than two seconds better than any other competitor in the field and she is also the reigning Paralympic champion at this distance, while 16-year-old Adenegan secured the bronze in Rio last year.

Tait, 31, has only been racing for four years after being inspired by the efforts of Cockroft and others in the 2012 Paralympics in London and has already won two silver medals at the 2016 European Championships.
