Nansi Selwood of Penderyn learns Braille at 90

A woman from the Cynon Valley who started losing her sight 10 years ago has learnt Braille at the age of 90.

Nansi Selwood can now see almost nothing apart from some shapes and the difference between light and dark.

But Mrs Selwood, from Penderyn, said learning Braille had "filled a big gap in her life".

Her teacher said learning the system took a lot of practice and determination, and was a remarkable achievement at such an age.

She said: "It's filled so much time and it's provided some lovely surprises with books that I would never have read otherwise."
