BBC School Report does disability sport

Emma Emma | 15:57 UK time, Thursday, 15 March 2012

Today, classrooms became newsrooms in more than 1,000 schools throughout the UK as part of BBC School Report, the project which motivates secondary students around the UK to make and broadcast their own news.

Two top sports stories hitting the School Report headlines this year have been created by disabled children.

Many of the pupils at New Bridge School in Oldham are wheelchair users. They regularly play wheelchair football against their fellow walking students, and able-bodied teams from other schools. In this film, New Bridge clearly show who's in charge.

Charlie and Abby have been friends since nursery. They made a film for School Report on their friendship and a mutual love of wheelchair tennis. Charlie uses a wheelchair and Abby does not.
