Lee Scott MP has called for the need for audio-visual announcements (AV) on all new buses to help blind people navigate the bus network.

Seven out of 10 bus passengers with sight loss have been forgotten by a bus driver, according to statistics.

Mr Scott said: “I know from constituents the importance of audio-visual announcements to individuals with sight loss.

“The reassurance of knowing exactly where they are and when their stop is reached boosts confidence and encourages bus use.”

The Ilford North MP has served as a member on the Health Select Committee and the Transport Select Committee in Parliament.

He has also fundraised for several charities.
