Framfield 'mouth paintings' artist hopes to sell work

A man who lost the use of his arms and legs in a car crash at the age of 19 hopes to sell artwork he has done using his mouth.

Barry West, from Framfield, East Sussex, who started painting 18 months ago, has been accepted by the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists partnership.

In the 16 years since his accident, Mr West has also been skydiving, scuba diving and mountaineering and carried the Olympic torch through Rye last year.
