Amputee Lewis, the PT2 Paralympic champion, won by more than a minute, while visually impaired Ellis and guide Carl Shaw took gold in the PTVI class.

"It was really tough out there with those conditions," said Lewis, 34.

European champion Jade Jones in the PTWC class, Lauren Steadman in PTS5 and Steven Crowley in PTS4 won silvers.

Bronze medals for Joseph Townsend in the PTWC class, Fran Brown in the PTS2 and Melissa Reid in the PTVI completed Britain's haul.
