Rachel Morris - from Pembrokeshire - is the first Welsh athlete to win

:00:12.:00:17.

She claimed the title in the women's single skulls.

:00:18.:00:22.

Welsh athletes have added two medals so far to Team GB's tally.

:00:23.:00:26.

Steffan Messenger has this report from Rio.

:00:27.:00:31.

Having won her heat in spectacular style, Rachel Morris

:00:32.:00:34.

China's Lili Wang leading almost to the line.

:00:35.:00:52.

Clinching gold took every ounce of power and endurance

:00:53.:00:53.

Rachel, who lives in Guildford but whose family is from

:00:54.:00:58.

Pembrokeshire, now has a Paralympic title

:00:59.:01:00.

in more than one sport, having won gold and silver in hand

:01:01.:01:03.

For 19-year-old Sabrina Fortune though, Rio was her first

:01:04.:01:06.

She clinched a brilliant and unexpected bronze

:01:07.:01:08.

in the F20 shot put yesterday, the first Welsh competitor to medal

:01:09.:01:11.

No words can explain the emotion of just standing there, but for me

:01:12.:01:15.

No one told me they were coming out so to see them in front of me

:01:16.:01:22.

There is hope of another gold medal tomorrow in the form

:01:23.:01:31.

of Aled Sion Davies from Bridgend, one of the brightest

:01:32.:01:34.

He's currently the world record-holder and world

:01:35.:01:36.

The weight of expectation is huge but out in Rio, Aled's biggest fans

:01:37.:01:43.

Obviously he's nervous and excited but I definitely think he's ready.

:01:44.:01:47.

It's been four years of hard work and it is all built

:01:48.:01:59.

Aled Davies will be hoping for a repeat of scenes like these

:02:00.:02:03.

For now though it's Rachel Morris's chance to savour her success.

:02:04.:02:06.

The deadline runs out today for a father to return his daughter

:02:07.:02:09.

22-year-old Amina Al-Jeffery from Swansea, claims she's being

:02:10.:02:12.

held against her will by her father Mohammed.

:02:13.:02:14.

Last month the High Court ruled she must be allowed to return.

:02:15.:02:19.

From tomorrow the Severn Tunnel will close for six weeks to prepare

:02:20.:02:21.

This'll add an extra 40 minutes to journeys from south Wales

:02:22.:02:27.

But journey times are expected to be reduced,

:02:28.:02:31.

Hundreds of people gathered earlier to protest against plans

:02:32.:02:36.

to re-open a quarry on the outskirts of Cardiff.

:02:37.:02:39.

Construction company Tarmac hopes to expand Creigiau Quarry.

:02:40.:02:43.

Spelling out "no" to the resumption of quarrying near their homes,

:02:44.:02:50.

around 200 people from the neighbouring villages

:02:51.:02:53.

of Creigiau and Pentyrch met on the recreation ground next

:02:54.:02:56.

to the quarry to capture their opposition using a drone.

:02:57.:03:01.

If the plans are approved to reopen and expand the quarry,

:03:02.:03:04.

residents fear it will cause noise and air pollution,

:03:05.:03:08.

as well as causing gridlock on the roads.

:03:09.:03:11.

I've actually lived through the quarry when it was open

:03:12.:03:14.

before and so I know how bad it is, the blasting, cracks in the walls,

:03:15.:03:18.

things coming off people's shelves and things like that.

:03:19.:03:24.

Going back to 2002, the road structures and everything has

:03:25.:03:26.

changed immensely since then and we just haven't got the roads

:03:27.:03:29.

Quarrying stopped here in 2002, but Tarmac says it's

:03:30.:03:33.

an important source of limestone for the construction industry.

:03:34.:03:36.

The company says there will be passing places on roads and it's

:03:37.:03:40.

agreed to restrictions on quarry traffic travelling through Creigiau.

:03:41.:03:45.

Residents are also concerned that the planned expansion

:03:46.:03:48.

of the quarry would bring operations close to Pentyrch primary school.

:03:49.:03:56.

Cardiff Council says it would be inappropriate to comment at this

:03:57.:03:59.

stage but that all representations will be carefully considered.

:04:00.:04:01.

Rebecca John, BBC Wales Today, Creigiau.

:04:02.:04:08.

Wales football fans who sell on priority tickets

:04:09.:04:10.

:04:11.:04:12.

according to Football Supporters' Federation Cymru.

:04:13.:04:15.

The Football Association of Wales would not confirm fans

:04:16.:04:18.

could face suspension, but says it'll monitor

:04:19.:04:20.

Despite trailing 1-0 at half time, Swansea managed a 2-2

:04:21.:04:27.

draw against Chelsea at the Liberty Stadium,

:04:28.:04:29.

thanks to Gylfi Sigurd-sson's penalty and a goal by Leroy Fair

:04:30.:04:31.

Let's take a look at the weather forecast.

:04:32.:04:38.

Tomorrow it'll be dry and breezy, but expect it to turn cloudy

:04:39.:04:42.

Some hazy sunshine and feeling quite warm with highs of 22 Celsius.

:04:43.:04:46.
