Sara Cox has apologised after criticising the "daft" subtitles on a cinema film - which were aimed at people with hearing problems.

The DJ made her comment on Twitter after attending a screening of the film Bridesmaids, but offended members of the deaf community who voiced their upset with online responses.

She later sent a message which read: "Sorry, my random musings might sometimes not be thought through."

National Deaf Children's Society director of policy and campaigns Brian Gale said: "It's really important that individuals, as well as cinemas and other organisations, are aware of deaf young people's needs and work to break down barriers to give them the same opportunities as other children.

"We hope that Sara Cox now understands more, not less, access is needed."

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
