Nephew, 5, inspires hairdresser's Spargoland 'sensory' salon

A hairdresser has told how his five-year-old nephew, who was born with cerebral palsy, inspired him to create a salon in Essex for people with different disabilities.

Oscar, from Wickford, suffered brain damage at birth and needs full-time support and care.

His uncle Ian Marshall, from Brentwood, Essex, decided to start Spargoland, a salon for people with autism, learning and physical disabilities, which has since won an award.

Oscar's mum, Caroline Inches, said it is a "nice and relaxed" environment.
