Professional BSL interpreters 'essential' for arts

People who are deaf or have hearing loss still face barriers in their everyday lives, a charity has said.

Action on Hearing Loss said big arts and entertainment venues are providing British Sign Language interpretation, but that smaller venues and cinemas could do more.

Rhyan Berrigan, a civil servant from Llanbradach, Caerphilly county, has been deaf since birth.

She enjoys the theatre, gigs and cinemas - but says skilled interpreters are "essential".
