Derry group campaigns for disabled-friendly play parks

A Londonderry youth group has called on the city's council to ensure no more play parks are built without facilities in place for disabled children.

A new play park opened in the Strathfyole area of the city in 2017.

On the day the park opened some parents realised it was not accessible to their children.

Enagh Youth Forum will make its case to Derry City and Strabane District Council on Wednesday as part of council's new play plan strategy.
