Ellie Simmonds will be in action this weekend at the British Gas Swimming Championships in Sheffield.

The four-time Paralympic gold medalist will compete twice across the event -  getting underway on Thursday in the Women's MC 400m freestyle event alongside Hannah Russell.

Her next scheduled appearance is on Friday in the Women's MC 200m Individual Medley, going up against the likes of Amy Marren and Chloe Davies.
