Paralympic gold medallist Sarah Storey's first class performance will be marked with the production of a stamp in her honour.

Storey, who delivered ParalympicGB's first gold at the London Games, will appear on the stamp for her efforts in the Track Cycling Women's Pursuit C5.

Royal Mail said it was delighted to be issuing the special gold medal stamps to recognise Britain's Paralympic champions.

And it is the first time ever that a set of stamps has been issued to celebrate Paralympic gold medallists from the host country.

Residents of Storey's home town of Disley in Cheshire will be able to buy the stamps in the Post Office in Market Street, Disley.

Fellow ParalympicGB gold medallist Jonathan Fox, who won Great Britain's first swimming gold, is expected to get a stamp in his honour too.
