Disability groups fight for better access in Mexico City

Mexico City is massive – home to 20 million people, it can seem like one endless obstacle course: tree roots shooting out of broken pavements, uneven steps and potholes are everywhere.

One group of charities is trying to change. Katy Watson reports from Mexico’s capital city.
