Blind golf: Impairment 'won't stop me playing'

A golfer who went blind aged 25 has put on a charity golf day for fully-sighted players so they can experience having a visual impairment by using special goggles.

Nick Burr, 30, from St Neots, Cambridgeshire was determined not to let blindness hinder him and he continues to play with a guide.

This year's fundraising event, at the Meridian Golf Club near Cambridge, raised more than £5,000.

Mr Burr said playing when blind was "hard because you try to play like you could when you could see".
