'Paralysed' dancer to return to stage after assault

2 July 2012 Last updated at 09:02 BST

Last year 19-year-old ballet dancer Jack Widdowson was lying paralysed in a hospital bed after being assaulted during a night out.

Doctors thought he might never walk again, but just eight months later, he is not only walking but dancing again too.

This week Widdowson will return to the stage in his first public appearance since the attack.

Graham Satchell reports.
