Ellie takes to the waves

The five-time Paralympic swimming champion, from Walsall, took part in an event in Wales funded by Children in Need proceeds.

The surfing school run by company Surfability is adapted to cater for young people with disabilities.

She was even joined by Children in Need mascot Pudsey at the event yesterday.

Ellie tweeted afterwards: "So fun meeting everyone at @BBCCiN funded project, @surfability, and seeing how donations are making a difference to young people in Wales."
