A visually-impaired schoolgirl from Sheffield was given VIP treatment on a special visit to London after winning a competition.

Emma Ellis, aged 12, from Mosborough, took a trip on the London Eye as her prize in the contest, organised by the Action for Blind People charity.

Emma is a member of Sheffield Actionnaires, one of the charity’s activity clubs for blind and partially-sighted children.

Despite her sight problems, she still has some vision, allowing her to enjoy the views from the big wheel.

“The movement made me feel a bit dizzy, but it was really good fun,” said Emma.

She was also taken on a tour of the charity’s resource centre near King’s Cross.
