Retail disability signage in the city of York has been described as inadequate.

According to local residents, a number of retailers have failed to provide adequate signage for disabled access users.

Commenting on the lack of signage on display at one retail outlet, wheelchair users Lynn Jeffries told the York Press: "It wouldn't take much to put an arrow to the accessible door, but there's nothing to show how you can ask for assistance."

She added: "[At one shop you] often see people in wheelchairs sitting outside because they didn't know there was another door [and] there's still nothing there to suggest that."

The news provider claimed that while disabled access signage in York was not universally bad, many retailers still have a long way to go if they are to meet customers' expectations.

Recently, the organisers of Endon's annual well-dressing event, which is more than 160 years old, said they would install better directional health and safety signage for the benefit of attendees.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800109512-ADNFCR
