Blind leading the blind

FULL marks to the Snail’s favourite read, the Crown Prosecution Service News, for its outstanding sensitivity during a recent interview with a CPS employee.

As part of an in-depth feature into visually impaired people, the CPS News picked Shirley Grizedale, a blind typist in the CPS Cumbria office, to answer a series oflight-hearted questions in its long-running Q&A slot.

The question that really caught the Snail’s attention came towards the end of the list: “What can you see from your window?” To which Ms Grizedale stoutly replied: “Nothing – I am blind. However, I am told there is a very nice view of the Cathedral and its grounds.”
