Video report by Rob Smith.
A student living with a stammer is asking for more consideration from the public while he's wearing a mask, and if he needs to remove it.
Faizan Sheikh from Manchester uses a breathing technique to help his speech but a mask's material can interfere with it.
The eighteen-year-old and his family feel some people have been less patient, helping those who stammer, during the pandemic.
