Beverley-born cyclist Adam Duggleby has come away from the Tokyo 
Paralympics with a silver medal in a cycling team pursuit event. Adam, 36, who now lives in Leeds, piloted visually impaired teammate Steve Bate into second place in the B 4000m team pursuit event. The pair had won two golds at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio.

And finally, more than 52,000 driving tests have been cancelled in Yorkshire in the past three months. Ninety-six percent of the cancellations were due to the pandemic and learners are now having to book tests into 2022.
