    He explained a bit about the sport on Radio Derby earlier: "There is an element of wrapping people up in bubble wrap," he said.

    "Wheeelchair rugby tends to rip off that bubble wrap.

    "We may be in wheelchairs, we may well have physical disabilities, but we enjoy a bit of violence too."

    In its first weekend, the free exhibition in Lincoln saw nearly 30,000 visitors.
