The 35 year old swimmer, from Box, who won two golds at last summer's Rio Games and has nine Paralympics medals in total admitted she was "incredibly proud'' as she was invested alongside several of her Great Britain teammates in London - the day after having her local swimming pool in Corsham renamed in her honour.
Claire Cashmore and Alice Tai, two other members of the quartet which won the 34 point 4x100m medley relay in a world record time in Brazil, were also among stars picking up MBEs.
