Donald Trump on Friday night demanded that Fox News fire a reporter after she confirmed a series of highly-damaging incidents detailed in an Atlantic article. Melania Trump defended her husband.
Caroline Casey opens up about her life of blindness, and how she spent over a decade hiding her condition from colleagues.
She is now campaigning to help others suffering with eyesight conditions.
I found out I was legally blind on my 17th birthday. The day had started with me happily opening presents on my parents’ bed.
Like many 17-year-olds, I was over the moon to open a voucher for my first driving lesson – ever since I was a girl, I’d dreamed of being a motorbike racer.
Later that day, my mum and I took my little sister Hilary to her hospital appointment. Hilary has ocular albinism, a condition of the iris that means she is legally blind.
I’d also struggled with my eyesight my whole life, but I put it down to being extremely shortsighted.
Things were only visible when they were a few inches in front of my face – the rest of the world was seen through a smear of Vaseline.
I zoned out during Hilary’s eye examination, my head full of motorbikes. Whenever Hilary had an eye test, I had one too, to be a supportive older sister – or so I thought.
‘It’s your birthday today? Any nice presents?’ the doctor asked with a smile, as he noticed the date in my file.

History is history, if there are people of note who contributed to history, then they should all be included. We are supposed to live in a democratic country, where freedoms have been earned by our forefathers. There are many countries in the world that censor their own history, depending who is in power at anyone time. In the UK this should not be so, PC correctness on either side of politics should be outlawed.
Slavery, the many wars, ,explorers, etc. are all part of the history of the UK and in order that children get a balanced view, each and everyone of the people concerned should be included. You may not like what certain people have done in the creation of history, but you can not change it by erasing them from the history teachings. To do so would put you with the likes of Stalin, Hitler and many other rulers, who felt they could change history by deleting what they did not agree with.
