High School Musical inspires UK student's US college dream

Tilly Griffiths was inspired by High School Musical to attend an American university.

And after achieving three As and an A* in her A-levels, the 18-year-old, who has spinal muscular atrophy, has won a four-year scholarship to Stanford University.

Tilly, from Staffordshire, will also have 24-hour care funded by the NHS while she is in the US - the first time it has done so.
