Cox says sorry for subtitle blunder

Sara Cox later said sorry for her comments

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."
