DEAF children were given the opportunity to hail a ride on the Listening Bus a mobile exhibition.

The service rolled into Great Missenden Combined School on Tuesday as part of the The National Deaf Children's Society (NDCS) roadshow. Visitors and teachers discovered a range of equipment and met experts.

Susan Daniels, chief executive of NDCS, said: "Technology is transforming the lives of deaf children. Having grown up deaf myself, I know only too well how important it is to receive the right information and equipment, which can both educate and liberate."
