A Briton will be the European Space Agency's first disabled astronaut.

John McFall, from Frimley in Surrey, was selected by the ESA to join its training programme and could be the first disabled person to go into space.

The 41-year-old lost his right leg in a motorcycle accident when he was 19 and went on to compete for Great Britain and Northern Ireland at the Paralympic Games.
