Visually impaired people from across our region have taken part in a rally at Westminster, over concerns that taxi drivers are turning blind customers away because of their guide dogs.

Scott Valance from Norfolk was among protesters who travelled to the capital.

The film by the health service union 'Unison' features staff struggling to cope with the aftermath of traumatic call outs, saying they're worried their stress could impact on the safety of patients.

But the East of England Ambulance Service has responded saying it's planning to recruit more staff and has urged crews not to vote to take action.
