A mum from Cornwall has parked her car across the entrance to a housing development which she says puts her blind daughter at risk.

Michelle Hough claims the 'shared space road', which can be used by both vehicles and pedestrians, would also impact on wheelchair users and elderly people.

Sanctuary Housing, which owns the site, said it was fully compliant with planning permission granted by Cornwall Council.

The council has been contacted for comment.
