Alton Towers Crash Victim Vicky Balch Makes Her Modelling Debut

Vicky Balch, the student who lost her leg after the Alton Towers roller coaster crash, has made her catwalk debut after being signed by a modelling agency.

The 20-year-old, who had her leg amputated above the knee after the crash, was approached by Models of Diversity, who found her story "really inspirational".

Balch walked the runway for the Models of Diversity catwalk show at Shepherd's Bush Market in London on Saturday 3 October.

Other models on the catwalk included Celebrity Big Brother' star Gail Porter with her daughter Honey and Gogglebox favourite Sandy Channer.

Models of Diversity hopes to change the face of the fashion and modelling industries by featuring a more diverse range of models.

"Where are the models of colour? The larger models? The shorter models? The models with a disability? The older models?" their website asks.

"Models of Diversity is the campaign for more diversity in the models we see every day.

"We call on the fashion, beauty and marketing industries to recognise the beauty in people of all races, ages, shapes, sizes and abilities."
