A charity will help North Wales Police to walk in the shoes of blind people by subjecting them to a sensory tunnel.

Guide Dogs Cymru is to visit 10 sites, starting at Caernarfon Police Headquarters, in Gwynedd, on Monday.

Its pitch-black tunnel has different noises, textures and obstacles which distort the senses.

The charity said it would give officers a chance to experience the challenges faced by the visually impaired.

Guide Dogs Cymru will also visit Colwyn Bay Police, in Conwy, on Tuesday, St Asaph Police, in Denbighshire, on Wednesday, Mold Police, in Flintshire, on Thursday and Wrexham Police on Friday.
