Disability Wales has said that more needs to be done to make sure popular tourist locations are accessible to people with disabilities. Lack of accessible toilets, facilities and services were causing disabled people and their families being excluded.

Rhain Davies, Chief Executive of Disability Wales has said that services provided by local authorities and businesses were 'not good enough'.

"One of the basic principles of independent living is for disabled people to have choice and control over how they go about their day-to-day lives," she said.

"This includes having access to cultural opportunities such as visiting tourist attractions and accessing other recreational activities.

"Local authorities should do more to ensure accessibility of tourist attractions and events, as should local businesses."
