Hackney BMX getting deaf children involved in sport

A group of deaf children had a go at BMX racing today as part of a project to make the sport more accessible. The National Deaf Childrens Society says that deaf children often end up being excluded from sports clubs because organisers think they need special treatment.

So the event at the Hackney BMX Club was set up to tackle that problem. Rags Martel spoke to some of them.
