A schoolboy whose battle against a speech disorder was featured in the TV documentary Educating Yorkshire said his nerve-wracking speech to classmates in the show was "the most amazing moment".
Musharaf Asghar overcame a stammer, with the help of teacher Mr Burton who used methods from The King's Speech film, to read a poem in front of fellow pupils in an emotional moment broadcast on Channel 4 last night.
The teenager, writing in the Guardian afterwards, said: "The most amazing moment for me was when I finally managed to speak in Mr Burton's class. The poem we were working on was called The Moment and it really was a moment I will remember for ever."
