BBC Red Button Closure: Statement from the President of the NFBUK

This is fantastic news, it is a victory for equality, diversity and disability and the NFBUK along with our fellow petitioners look forward to working with the BBC in an engaging and collaborative manner on this issue.

The BBC Red Button teletext is a vital service for the people of Great Britain and is a life line to many disabled and elderly people across the nation.

We would like to thank the Government and the BBC for listening and acting on the concerns raised.

Andrew Hodgson
President of the National Federation of the Blind of the UK
