Cerebral palsy boy Evan Whitton in first walk to school

A seven-year-old boy has made a special walk to school in West Yorkshire.

Evan Whitton, from Silsden near Keighley, spent his early years in a wheelchair but is now able to walk a short distance following an operation.

Evan, who has cerebral palsy, said he was inspired by a school project about the Olympics.

He was supported in his walk by his family and Hannah Cockroft, from Halifax, who is preparing to take part in the London 2012 Paralympics.
