Music industry hope for deaf Grange Hill actress

A former Grange Hill actress who became deaf says it has become her ambition to break into the music industry.

Rebecca-Anne Withey, from Walsall in the West Midlands, appeared in the BBC teenage drama from about 2006 when she lost most of her hearing.

She said she used her memories of music to write songs, and has just filmed a video to her new song See you in the Sky.
