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.

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.
