A new boxing club says it will look to work closely with people who have special needs to teach them skills of the sport.

Nairn Boxing Club says one of its main aims will be to work alongside disabled people and in particular those diagnosed with autism.

The club has been established by head coach Kevin Brooks whose own son suffers from autism.

Brooks wants to use his experience to help create a club that is about diversity, equality and caters for all whatever their background.

"We are coaching boxing to students at Cantrybridge college and we are in talks with working with one of the biggest autism charity support groups in the country.

"We have been teaching skills to kids with special needs working closely with Friends of Autism Highland where we have been doing taster sessions.

"I have ambitions of running free autism adapted boxing session every fortnight."
