Critically ill boy becomes jockey

A seven-year-old boy who battled a critical illness will realise his dream of becoming a jockey.

Freddie Fletcher from Steventon, Oxfordshire was left fighting for his life with an infection, but his love of his pony Tommy helped him recover.

On Sunday he will become the youngest jockey to compete in the Isle of Wight Grand Festival.
