BBC News Footage in the Workshop

A group of blind American Armed Forces veterans has visited a Brighton rehabilitation and training centre for serving and retired personnel who have lost their sight due to conflict, age or illness.

At the St Dunstan's centre the group were shown techniques and equipment that are used there to give blind veterans greater independence.
The six visiting veterans, who are members of the Blinded Veterans Association USA, are in the UK on a week-long visit which is part of an exchange programme called Project Gemini.
Ray Hazan, president of St Dunstan's, said: "The visit extends the co-operation between our two nations both on the battlefield and its subsequent consequences."
