Full-time carer dances to Northern Soul 'to escape'

A Northern Soul dancer who is a full-time carer for his mother has said dancing is his "release".

Carlton Gadsby, who featured in a Barclaycard advert alongside his friend Sarah, has been dancing for about 40 years.

The 59-year-old, from Spondon in Derby, has been caring for his 81-year-old mother, who has Alzheimer's, for nearly nine years.

He said he wanted to tell his story "to help people who are in the same position as him".
