A Devon ice rink has launched a new scheme aimed at helping wheelchair users enjoy ice skating.
10-year-old Dominic Harvey was the first to try the session
The monthly Ice Mobility sessions at Plymouth Pavilions allow wheelchair users to join in the fun on the ice from the comfort of their own chair.
The ice stewards are on hand to guide the wheelchair users around the ice if they need help.
As long as they are fairly proficient, a carer can also come along to push the chair around on the ice.
"A similar session like this was launched in Sheffield a while back and its success has been tremendous," said Robert Maltby, from the Pavilions.
"Up until now customers with a disability used our specially designed sledges on the ice, however, on occasions it proved difficult for some people to get in them.
"After the success of our first session, this is definitely something which we can build on and bring back time and time again."
The first person to try the session was 10-year-old Dominic Harvey from Cornwood.
"Its great, because you are on ice you can go loads faster," said Dominic. "I really like the music and disco lights."
Dominic's mother, Linda agreed.
"We've come to the ice rink before with able bodied people. However, Dominic would normally have to sit on the side and watch," she said.
"He's never had the chance to go on ice and was very keen to do it. I shall certainly bring him again."
The next Ice Mobility session will take place on 3 July and session must be booked in advance.
