Guide Dogs UK calls on Londoners to help the visually impaired

Close to half of Londoners with sight loss feel left out of everyday moments that others take for granted.

That's according to a new poll carried out for the charity Guide Dogs.

Its latest report says society has little understanding of the challenges faced by those who are blind or visually impaired, and isolation is a major problem.

The organisation is calling on Londoners to volunteer to become guides to those who need support navigating the capital.
