A BLACKBURN student is on his way to designing his own computer game.

After getting a distinction for a BTEC National Certificate in IT at Blackburn College, Waseem Azam, 20, is starting a degree in games programming at Aberdeen University this month.

Waseem, from Whalley Old Road, said: "I'm looking forward to starting university and learning all about games programming. Who knows, one day I may create my own top selling game - watch this space!"
