Why blind people over 65 will miss out on extra benefit payments - we speak to campaigner Jill Allen King. And Philip Sime reveals why he took up ballroom dancing.
Recent changes to welfare rules mean that blind people can now apply for higher rate Disability Living Allowance but only if you are under 65. We speak to campaigner Jill Allen-King about why blind people over the age of 65 will miss out on extra benefit payments. We hear your views on our recent programmes including accessible Olympic tickets. And despite describing himself as being blind, six foot seven, 21 stone and having little natural sense of coordination, Philip Sime tells us about the joys of ballroom dancing and why it's an ideal hobby for blind people.
