Paralysed man on how scuba diving brings him happiness

A former sportsman left paralysed after a cycling accident has described how scuba diving is helping to rebuild his confidence.

Sam Asbury, 22, from Norton Canes, near Cannock, Staffordshire, broke his spine when he was thrown from a bike at the age of 14.

Mr Asbury is now having scuba diving lessons along with his dad, with the British Sub-Aqua Club.

"It's the first time I've properly enjoyed doing something," he said.
