Eleven-time Paralympic champion Sarah Storey says that a van driver told her to get a job when she asked him to move his van off the pavement.

Eleven-time Paralympic gold medallist Dame Sarah Storey has tweeted her anger after being told to "get a job" by a van driver who was blocking the pavement.

The swimmer-turned-cyclist, who won four golds in London last summer, said that she asked the driver to move his van so she could get past with her four-month-old daughter Louisa in a pushchair.

However, the 35-year-old was told that the man was too busy working to move it, and that she should get a job.

Storey has won 16 medals in the pool, including five golds, before switching to cycling for the 2008 games, where she won two titles.
