Young dancers to get 'Olympic moment' in 2012 festival

A group of young dancers will get their very own 'Olympic moment' this weekend, as they prepare to perform at the London 2012 Festival.

The story began 15 years ago, when ballet dancer Lee Fisher met some children from a school in Birmingham.

They all had severe learning difficulties but their determination to succeed led them to set up their own dance company.

David Sillito reports.
