Disability intern's scheme 'joy'

A disabled man has said he was "overjoyed" at the challenge an unpaid internship provided him in Devon.

Nathan Stocker worked at Derriford Hospital as part of a year-long Project Search placement which also enabled him to complete a diploma. He has since secured a job at one of the hospital's contractors.

Project Search runs the internship programme at various places around the county and said 87% of its participants went on to secure paid work.
