A disabled athlete took time out of her busy training schedule to visit pupils at Honiton Primary School.

Sarah Piercy, who won the London Marathon in the paralympians race in 2000, completing it in a record time, joined the children to talk about her life and her achievements last week.

The children were very impressed with her visit and wanted to try out her racing wheelchair.
