Line of Duty actress Vicky McClure's dementia choir is set to perform at a hometown concert in Nottingham.

The Our Dementia Choir was founded in 2018 by McClure after she witnessed the battles her own grandmother faced with dementia.

The group will perform alongside X Factor star Sam Bailey, from Leicester, at the Binks Yard venue on Friday.

It was founded in Nottingham and has more than 25 members who have performed across the UK.

The choir was originally created as part of a BBC documentary in 2018, which saw McClure - who is from the city - explore music's ability to combat the effects of dementia.
