Keeping a safe two-metre distance during the COVID-19 lockdown presents a serious difficulty for people who are used to being guided when they shop.

And The RNIB has announced the immediate suspension of its physical Braille library lending services. Dave Williams tells us what other reading options are being made available.

a new petition by leading blind organisations is calling on the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to include the blind and visually impaired in its list of 1.5m vulnerable people who receive priority online shopping slots.

We talk to reporter Mani Djazmi about his own quest for groceries and whether an exception should be made.

Have you signed the petition?
