Bryan proves he's got drive

Story and Photo copyright: Derry Jounal, 3rd July 2009

An autistic Derry man is fulfilling the dream of a lifetime by learning how to drive.
Twenty one years-old Bryan Sutherland from the Waterside passed tests set by the DVLNI to get his medical driving licence. He is now learning to drive with John O'Donnell of 1st Choice Driving School.

His mother Ruby said the experience is fantastic for Bryan, especially as he missed out on a place in the army because of his Asperger's Syndrome.

The hotel swimming pool where a boy drowned at the start of a Disneyland holiday was unsupervised at the time, it has been revealed.

The owners of Hotel Explorers, near the resort in Paris, confirmed that no lifeguard was on duty when five-year-old Colum Canning was pulled from the water.

The autistic boy, from Londonderry, Northern Ireland, drowned not long after the family had checked in on Thursday.
