Woman who couldn't read at 16 to graduate with degree.

A woman who could not read or write at 16 has earned a first class honours degree at university.

Chloe McRoberts from Ayr will pick up her social work degree from Glasgow Caledonian University later this week.

The 26-year-old struggled with "erratic behaviour" and access to learning support at school before she left without any qualifications.

She started again from scratch at a council-funded project and now hopes to support other children.

Ms McRoberts told BBC Radio Scotland's Good Morning Scotland programme: "I'd realised I was dyslexic when I was around about primary three.

At secondary school, she was still unable to access the learning support she needed.

Her mum even quit her job to support her daughter, but Ms McRoberts eventually withdrew from school with no qualifications.

She was finally able to get the right help at South Ayrshire Council's Learning Shop project.
