The head of Nottinghamshire County Council will experience what it's like next month to try to navigate walking outdoors for someone who is visually impaired.

It's hoped the event on the 9th November will raise awareness about the work of guide dogs.

Anthony May, the County Council's Chief Executive, will walk through West Bridgford wearing a blindfold whilst being assisted by a trainee guide dog.

The walk will involve crossing roads, going down narrow pavements and avoiding obstacles on pavements like cars and cafe furniture.

The 'Guide Dogs' Street Ahead' campaign is looking to highlight the issues visually impaired people experience on a daily basis when trying to navigate streets, including clutter on pavements.
