Blind woman 'without a guide dog for 16 months'

People with visual impairments face delays getting a guide dog because of a shortage of instructors, a charity has said.

There are about 20 people in Wales on the waiting list and Rowena Thomas-Breese, 58, of Old Colwyn, Conwy, has been without a guide dog for 16 months.

She said: "I like to be able to do things by myself. I'm not one for staying in."

Guide Dogs Cymru said there was not a shortage of dogs, but experienced staff were needed to train them.
