Paralympics heading for sellout

11:55 am on 15 August 2012

The London Paralympics, due to start on the 29th of this month, are expected to be the first Paralympics to sell out.

About 1.2 million tickets for the Paras were sold in the runup to the Olympics, and another 600-thousand were snapped up during London 2012.

Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, an 11-time British Paralympic gold medalist, has described sales as a "dream come true".
