Young people with hemiplegia, a condition which results in one side of the body being weaker than the other, have been taking part in a magic camp in London.

The Breathe Magic Summer Camp is intended to help young people with the condition to improve their hand movement, coordination and confidence by learning and practising magic tricks taught to them by real magicians.
