A street Party for the deaf

Preparations are underway for a major event aimed at supporting and celebrating London's deaf community.

The Deaf Street Party in Ilford has traditionally attracted hundreds of people - many from outside of the capital - and is organised by the charity Empowering Deaf Society.

Alicia Edwards has been speaking to the founder Mangai Sutharsan, who joined us with her interpretor Leah Jewiss. 

Ilford's annual Deaf Street Party takes place this year on the 20th July.
