Mel Stevens hoping to open aerial performance studio

A former professional dancer who broke her back 10 years ago is hoping to open an aerial performance centre for people with disabilities.

Mel Stevens from Newbury discovered that hanging upside down helped her physical state and spurred her on mentally.

She went on to take part in performances ahead of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

Ms Stevens hopes to have her specialist studio operating in Newbury by Easter.
