Staff taught to make rail line ‘dementia friendly’

BBC Radio 5 Live has been to see the UK's first 'dementia friendly' rail line, where staff are being taught to recognise when people living with dementia are travelling.

It's hoped it will make life easier for people living with dementia, and their carers, travelling on Northern Rail between Morecambe and Leeds.

It has been organised by the Bentham Line Community Rail Partnership with help from Dementia Friends Keighley.
