An 83-year-old blind veteran from Cromer will have his art exhibited in Brighton next month.

David Brocklehurst's artwork "it'll do" will be featured in Blind Veterans UK's annual exhibition fundraiser.

Taking on the theme of 'transport', all artwork featured in the exhibition will be displayed at the Brighton rehabilitation centre and available to bid on until November 1, 2019.

Mr Brocklehurst said: "I've got very poor vision these days with my glaucoma and macular degeneration so painting is certainly a challenge, but with the techniques and equipment that Blind Veterans UK have given me, I'm able to just about manage.

"My family are very proud of me and I'm excited to see how much the painting sells for!"
