Grey-Thompson: Lords tops Olympics

Baroness Grey-Thompson, who won 11 Paralympic gold medals, says that "if it's possible I love being in the Lords more than I loved being an athlete".

The crossbench (independent) peer says it is a "pretty good feeling" when you make a change to a line of legislation which makes people's lives better.
