London 2012: South Tyneside teenager's Paralympic hopes

A teenager from South Tyneside born with cerebral palsy is hoping to bring home a medal for his country at the London 2012 Paralympics.

Josef Craig did not expect to qualify for the team after contracting a life-threatening condition six months ago.

However, after making a full recovery, the 15-year-old threw himself back into training and has made it into the Team GB swimming team.
