Choir helps stroke survivors in Northern Ireland

A new project is using music and song to help stroke survivors with communication difficulties.

'Singing for Stroke' is led by volunteers, including local musicians and singing teachers.

Stroke survivors join in communal song, using instruments to help them with rhythm.

Ann Mallon, who had a stroke aged 50 while on holiday, says she loves the project as "she loves to sing".
