Athletes heroes' return in London at Trafalgar Square

Team GB's medallists were getting the heroes' welcome they deserved as the Olympic parade events came to Trafalgar Square on Tuesday.

With Team GB winning 67 medals and the Paralympic team claiming 147, it's set to be a full square to greet them after a tremendous performance in Brazil.

Olympians such as our very own Hounslow hero Mo Farah, as well as around 350 other athletes were set to attend - with music, viewing billboards and festivities also on the agenda.

An emotional farewell to fans was set to take place as Jessica Ennis-Hill officially retires from athletics.

If you can't make it to the square, getwestlondon will be there throughout the event bringing you the latest from the parade live and the reaction from crowds.
