Moving moment woman hears for first time

After almost forty years of silence, this is the first moment Joanne Milne heard anything.

Her mum filmed the 39-year-old's reaction when her life-changing cochlear implants were switched on.

Joanne is from Gateshead and used to live in Sheffield. She has been profoundly deaf since birth.

To celebrate this incredible moment in her life, her friend Tremayne Crossley has made her a playlist to take her through the decades of music that she's missed.
