A determined wood turner has hand-crafted hundreds of remarkable pens, bowls and candlesticks - despite being 100 per cent BLIND.

Chris Fisher, 48, had picked up the deadly toxoplasmosis virus and became completely blind in just four weeks in 2008.

He was forced to quit his job in the motor industry as a old vehicle restoration engineer for BMW as his sight left him.
