COUNTY Liberal Democrat and Labour councillors are celebrating after their campaign to get Worcestershire County Council to support those with invisible disabilities succeeded.

The motion, unanimously supported by councillors, supports the campaign led by charity Crohn's and Colitis UK and includes encouraging venues providing accessible public toilets to install new signage.

This is to help stop stigma and discrimination towards people with 'invisible illnesses' such as Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis.

The signs produced by the charity Crohn's and Colitis UK have two standing figures and a wheelchair user with the words Accessible Toilet and the logo 'Not every disability is visible'.
