PARTIALLY-sighted and blind people can now access information on fighting crime as Cambridgeshire police release their first Braille information.

The audio CD appears in a Braille wallet and contains safety tips, alongside information on how to contact the police in circumstances of crime and how to make the community a safer place to live.

It was produced with advice from the Royal National Institute of the Blind.

Chief Constable Julie Spence said: "We are keen to see how well it is received as this is the first time the force has produced anything in Braille."

The CD will be distributed to local contacts and will be available soon on the police website, www.cambs.police.uk
