OWEN MILLER received a hero's welcome as a party was held for him at a popular West Fife restaurant.

Taste of India Rosyth held an event in his honour on Friday night with the Paralympic Games gold-medallist the star of the show.

The 29-year-old stormed to a sensational debut finish at the Games in Tokyo this summer, returning home to Dunfermline with a gold medal for his showing in the T20 1500 metres.

Mohammed Motin, from Taste of India Rosyth, hailed Miller as a "national hero", and was delighted to welcome the Paralympian and his coach, Steve Doig, to the restaurant on Admiralty Road.

He said: "It is with immense pleasure that we are congratulating Owen for his accomplishment in the Paralympics.

"He is an example to us all, showing us how hard work, determination and perseverance can produce tremendous results. Our young people can learn a lot from Owen.

"We at Taste of India wish him all the best in the future and hope that he will continue to make us proud and inspire our youngsters."

At the end of the party, Mr Motin handed over a £100 cheque to Gabby Doig, coach at Disability Sport Fife.
