Technology helping visually impaired hit the mark

As a young boy, Lyndon Powell used to shoot at tin cans with his father.

He's still practising the sport - but today he relies on his ears, not his eyes, to hit the target.

Lyndon, who began to lose his sight at the age of 17, is one of many who attend Tondu shooting club.

There, a new facility is helping blind and visually impaired people enjoy shooting practice.

Nicola Hendy went to meet them.
