Spidergirl, Batwoman and the Riddler were among the guests at Hannah Cockroft’s 21st birthday party.

The fancy dress celebration saw Hannah’s friends and family come dressed as superheroes - with the double gold medal-winning Paralympian appropriately dressed as Wonder Woman.

Around 90 people attended the party at King Cross Park Social Club last weekend.

Hannah, who also won two golds at this year’s World Championships in Lyon and one at the Anniversary Games in London, said: “I was in Finland during my birthday a month ago so I didn’t really get to celebrate it properly at the time.

“Plus I thought to myself that I’d never really held a celebration for what happened at London last year or the World Championships, so it seemed like a good idea to have a party.

“I came up with the idea of fancy dress and there were some absolutely brilliant costumes, although mine was the best obviously!

“There were so many different costumes and The Joker looked awesome - everyone was very creative.

“It went really well and everyone had a good time.

“I got some lovely presents but it was just nice to see all my friends and family.”
