A student from Bridgend will be performing in front of royalty on Tuesday evening. Lloyd Coleman, 17, is part of the orchestra at the prestigious Chetham's School of Music in Manchester.

Playing at London's Royal Festival Hall in the presence of Prince Edward might seem intimidating but Lloyd is used to big challenges, having been born deaf and visually impaired. Lloyd says he finds it easier to hear music than speech. Matthew Richards reports.
