Ellie Simmonds has won ANOTHER gold medal for Britain at the World Paralympic Swimming Championships.

The teenager took gold in the 100m freestyle on Thursday, and smashed another world record as she did it.

Ellie won the race in a time of one minute 15.97 seconds. She said she was delighted to have broken another record at the event in Holland.

"I am on such a high right now," she said. "I have won four gold medals and I am so happy."

"I haven't broken that world record since 2009 and I feel really good to have done it here," Ellie, 15, added.

Other British wins came from Louise Watkin who took the 50m freestyle, and Paralympic champion David Roberts won gold in the 100m freestyle.
