A teenager from Tamworth with a rare degenerative disease says she feels forced into using a wheelchair so she can go back to school.
Millie-Mae Ormsby has a condition called Fredreich's Ataxia, meaning that every day it becomes harder to walk, talk and control movement. She says she can walk with support, and last week the school carried out risk assessments, but the 14-year-old says they were designed for her to fail, and she felt humiliated in front of her friends.
The headteacher of Wilnecote High School says he must ensure the teenager is safe when she comes back, but they haven't said that she must be in a wheelchair to come back. Chris Halpin reports.
