Paralympian takes on a new challenge

Adrian Derbyshire, from Warrington, is a man who likes a challenge...He was left partially paralysed after a brain haemorrhage in 2008. But since then he's gone on to become a multi-medal winning paralympic fencer.

His latest project is hand cycling around the country talking to schoolchildren about hate crime.

New scheme to help hate crime victims

Victims of hate crime in Manchester will be given more opportunities to report incidents in confidence as part of a new campaign.

More than 3000 hate crimes and incidents were reported to Greater Manchester Police last year. Kirsty Mills, from Walkden, was abused because she's deaf.

Victims can now report incidents at third-party reporting centres if they're not comfortable going to police.
