A wheelchair-user of nine years has spoken about his determination to walk again.
Before Shaun Stretton began using the facilities at The Parkway Lifestyle Centre - which opens today - he had not walked for nine years.
Shaun's trainer, Scott Parish, said:
"When he first started, he could literally walk 5 metres, and that was a struggle, wasn't it bud? When we first started to assess you..."
"Yeah, yeah, I used to be in a chair. When I was, they said 'Shaun, walking again...?' and I said 'no more chair, I just want to walk again'!"
Shaun Stretton had not walked for nine years before he started using facilities at The Portway Lifestyle Centre, in Oldbury, which opens officially today.
Scott Parish, one of the centre's trainers, has been speaking about Shaun's remarkable progress:
"He's done really well, he's walked, I think, now around about 110 metres! And before it was with a frame, but now he's walking pretty much by himself."
An £18 million centre which helps people with and without disabilities will be opened officially this morning.
The Portway Lifestyle Centre in Oldbury has already had some success. Shaun Stretton has walked for the first time in nine years as a result of using the facilities
The family of a woman from Oldbury who died of cervical cancer after being denied a smear test will see a Parliamentary debate on the issue take place today.
Jess Evans, 22, visited doctors nine times but was told she was too young to be tested, as routine screenings don't start until women reach 25.
A 22-year-old from Oldbury died from cervical cancer after she was refused a smear test by doctors nine times, because she was under 25.
Jess Evans' mother is now campaigning to make doctors and members of the public aware of the symptoms.
Marie Evans has also started an e-petition to give under 25s with the cancer symptoms the choice as to whether they are tested.
The NHS say screening women under 25 would do more harm than good as abnormalities which will normally disappear on their own can be picked up.
DCI Kim Madill from West Midlands Police says that people who are being harrassed or stalked must come forward to either the police or a helpline, where they'll be able to get help.
The National Stalking Helpline is 0808 8020300
Martin Lindop, who is from the Crown Prosecution Service, says:
"The CPS takes reports of stalking and harassment very seriously, whether they are alleged to have taken place online, on the phone, in person or any other way.
If there is sufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction for an offence of this nature, and it is in the public interest, we will mount a robust prosecution."
The mother of Kamaljit Sidhu - who took her own life after a campaign of harassment by a former boyfriend - has shared her grief on the day her stalker Ryan Dey was sentenced.
Sarbjit Sidhu said:
“The police asked is there anything we can do, Mrs Sidhu, and my only answer to them was can you please give me my daughter back, we really miss her, her death has left a big hole in our lives."
“As a mother and a family we want the world to know this can never be allowed to happen again, I do not want anyone else to go through what we have. Our lives have stopped and we can’t breathe."
Ryan Dey from Oldbury has been jailed for two years for stalking his former girlfriend - who took her own life following the experience.
Dey was arrested in November last year, a month after the death of Kamaljit Sidhu.
Dey was accused of harassing and stalking his former partner for several months before the 29-year-old took her own life.
The couple had been together for 18 months before Ms Sidhu tried to end the relationship - Dey refused to accept the decision, making threats, and contacting her friends.
