An inspirational teenager from Maidenhead has spoken at the House of Commons about living with Usher Syndrome.

Molly Watt, from Oldacres, has the rare condition which causes deafness and extremely impaired vision.

The aspiring teacher was invited to London with her black Labrador-retriever cross guide dog, Unis, to speak at the ParliAble event in front of the Government's diversity and inclusion committee about living with the condition on Monday.

The talk coincided with Deafblind Awareness Week, which runs until Sunday.

The 19-year-old has also been invited to speak at the International Symposium on Usher Syndrome at Harvard Medical School, in Harvard University, Boston on Saturday, July 12.
