Election 2015: Council sued over polling station access

A London council is being sued for failing to ensure a polling station was accessible to people with disabilities.

In the first case of its kind in the UK, Adam Lotun, a wheelchair user, is claiming his human rights were breached because he could not vote last year.

Campaigners are calling for improvements nationwide after figures from the last general election showed only one-third of polling booths were fully accessible.

Nikki Fox reports.
