Hereford teen with autism aims to be mechanic after garage help

A teenager with autism is looking towards a career in mechanics after successfully spending time on work experience in a Hereford garage.

Nathan Mansell is hoping to start an apprenticeship in the future after securing a work placement at Griffiths Auto Services in his home city.

The 16-year-old, who lives with his mum Sam and dad Mark in the King’s Acre area, is looking to make the move when his full-time education at Summergil House, run by Orbis Education and Care, near Presteigne, comes to an end.
