Double Paralympic champion Kadeena Cox MBE has had two of her IPC Athletics World Championships medals stolen.

Cox became the first Briton since 1988 to win a medal in two sports at the same Games, winning four medals in total at last summer’s Rio Olympics, including gold in athletics and cycling.

The athlete left the medals in her car in Prestwich, Bury while filming in London on Thursday.

The 25-year-old tweeted: “Got home yest 2 find some1 had got into my car n cause I’d been filming just before my worlds medals where in there! Pls help me find them.

“Don’t know what to say really. I’m just gutted. My first worlds medals for both sports, worth more than any amount of money.”

One of the medals is a 2016 para-cycling Track World Championship gold, while the other was an IPC athletics World Championships medal from Doha 2015.
