London band catering for deaf people at their concerts

One in six people suffer hearing loss in the UK and around one in every thousand children born is profoundly deaf.

And many of those with hearing problems would like to go to concerts, but don't feel catered for at gigs.

London band Chasing Deer decided to do their bit for the movement. At their album launch party later this month, the sound system will allow those who are deaf in the audience to 'feel' the vibrations of the music, lyrics and speech will be interpreted on stage, and signers will operate throughout the venue.

To tell us more we were joined by Rod Hodkinson, Adam Diddlecombe and Peter Hyans.
