Navigating your way through a busy shopping centre or high-street can be a struggle at the best of times, but what about for those who are visually impaired?
One man who lost his sight three years ago says people need to be more aware of the challenges visually impaired people face.
Howell Williams says navigating streets is a challenge.
"There are potential obstacles everywhere. A-boards, bins, lamp-posts, bollards. People put things out in the streets without thinking about people like ourselves. There's a number of times I've almost walked into a cyclist coming towards me."
One charity is trying to make it easier - by getting together local groups to highlight so-called street clutter.
