Paralympics 2012: Ben Quilter wins judo bronze for Britain

Ben Quilter added Paralympics bronze to his two world titles with victory over Japan's Takaaki Hirai in the men's -60kg judo.

The 30-year-old visually impaired judoka won by ippon.

There had been a big question mark over him competing at all after he suffered cruciate and medial knee ligament injuries seven weeks before the Games.

Quilter paid tribute to the home crowd, telling BBC Breakfast: "Their support made a huge difference".
