William Roache presents Specsavers Star of the Year award

William Roache, who plays Coronation Street's Ken Barlow, awarded the Specsavers’ Sound Barrier Star of the Year at the awards ceremony in London.

The award went to Roger Hewitt from Bromley, a profoundly deaf man has been recognised for helping improve transport systems for the deaf and hard of hearing ahead of the 2012 London Olympics.

Ambassador and judge of the 2010 awards, William, who suffers major hearing loss himself, says "All of the finalists here today are deserving winners of the title and selecting just one was incredibly tough. Roger, however, really shone through as someone who has triumphed over adversity, using his own situation to help others. It’s a true inspiration to us all and I was delighted to present him with the Sound Barrier Star trophy."
