An art gallery has put on a display of work created by disabled youngsters in a series of workshops.

The Turning Tables showcase at Aspex in Gunwharf Quays, has been created with the help of Aiming High for Disabled Children and the Portsmouth Autism Support Network.

Louise and Dan Bush, of Ruskin Road in Southsea, are regular visitors with Joel, six, who has severe autism.

Mrs Bush said: 'Since coming here, Joel has improved dramatically. It's safe and the staff are lovely.'

Alison Waddington, of Hill Road, Portchester, took James, two and Rose, three, who has Downs syndrome.

Mrs Waddington said: 'I think they've both benefited.'
