Refugee student's pioneering work on facial paralysis

A researcher at Glasgow University is developing new technology designed to help people with paralysed faces.

Mahmoud Amir Alagha has been working on a way to capture digitally the way partial paralysis affects facial expressions.

The postgraduate student has had his own problems to overcome as a refugee from the conflict in Syria.
