The incredible journey of the refugee who became the best plasterer in Britain

Meet the man who arrived in Liverpool as a young refugee five years ago - and has just been named the best plasterer in Britain.

Yagoub Mohamed grew up in Sudan, but fled his village after his grandparents were killed by an Arab militia.

It took him ten years to make his way to the UK on a journey which took him through Northern Africa and Europe.

And when he finally arrived here he managed to enrol on a college plastering course.

Tim Scott's been to meet the man who's succeeding against all the odds.
