Bernadette William is a well-known figure to anyone who passes through Huddersfield town centre. Come rain, come sunshine, Monday to Saturday, she is at her pitch opposite the Town Hall every afternoon selling the Huddersfield Daily Examiner, which recently celebrated its 150th anniversary. It is a job which she has been doing for the past three years, and one which led to unexpected happiness. It brought her into contact with her fellow newspaper-seller Stuart William, who is also wheelchair-bound.
