Deaf woman hears for the first time

The moment a woman, who had been deaf since birth and never heard a sound, hears for the first time and has her life transformed has been captured on film. Joanne Milne, 40, from Gateshead, was born deaf, and during her 20s also began to lose her vision due to the rare medical condition Usher Syndrome. But last month she was fitted with cochlear implants and after 40 years of silence the life-changing procedure has meant she is now able to hear.
