A VISUALLY-impaired Wirral schoolboy was among 100 blind or partially sighted children invited on a backstage touch tour of the Playhouse Theatre in Liverpool.

Leon Clancy, aged seven, from Pensby was among those who met the cast prior to the special performance of pantomime Aladdin.

They took part in a special tour, which involved handling the props and instruments used in the play.

The event was organised by charity Action for Blind People.

After the visit, Leon said: "It was a really good show."

Janet Beale, from Action for Blind People, said: "A huge thank you to the Playhouse Theatre and everyone involved in Aladdin for arranging this lovely day.

"The children had a great time and we look forward to more shows for visually impaired children in the future."
