New eyes and new life for attack victim

A woman blinded by her boyfriend when he gouged her eyes is helping other victims of domestic violence.

A woman blinded by her boyfriend when he gouged her eyes is helping to raise awareness of domestic violence, to stop others being victimised as she was.

Tina Nash was attacked by Shane Jenkin in their home in Hayle, Cornwall in April 2011. He was sentenced to life in a secure mental health unit.

She has since had reconstructive surgery to implant prosthetic eyes, boosting her confidence and helping her "look forward to life".

Louise Hubball reports.
