Portsmouth deaf club helps isolated children

When Lindsey Baker found out during a parents' evening that her deaf son Riley was struggling to cope, she knew she had to take action.

Lindsey founded the Saturday Kids Zone in Portsmouth because she knew being deaf can be isolating.

They meet every two weeks to make sure that children who cannot hear do not feel alone.

The club hosts 50 families, with Riley saying he now has "billions of friends" among those who attend.
