Two-thirds 'uncomfortable' talking to people with disabilities

A woman who was born without legs and arms has told of the different reactions she has from strangers as they notice her disability.

Rosie Moriarty-Simmonds, from Cardiff spoke to BBC Wales Today before presenter Lucy Owen interviewed Rosemary Frazer, of disability charity, Scope.

The charity found that two-thirds of those who took part in a survey said they felt uncomfortable talking to people with disabilities.

Scope is now running an advertising campaign to highlight the awkwardness some people feel in an effort to help them overcome it.
