Back in February ITV West Country spoke to Ian Brooks, a blind man from Glastonbury who was refused the chance of a job because his prospective employer did not want a guide dog in the office.

Well, a company in London saw his story online and invited Ian to interview - they have since offered him his dream job.

It is safe to say Ian is over-the-moon with his new job which is in his ideal industry.

It's really hard to explain how happy I am, there aren't the words to explain it. This job ticks all the boxes for me, I'll be programming, working in the game industry and helping other blind/partially sighted people. Wow!

Conspexit, based in London, are developing a mobile app for the visually impaired. They have hired Ian as a programmer after he impressed them with his problem-solving skills.

It's welcome news following months of job searching and a period where Ian says he was made to feel "worthless" because his guide dog inhibited him from being offered a job.

We're absolutely delighted to welcome Ian - and his guide dog, Velvet - to the Conspexit family.
