Dangerous areas such as, the pedestrianised walkway at the top of the high street which merges onto the main road were highlighted.

After finishing the walk Mr Malthouse said: “It was great to meet Johnny who helped me get through a rather unnerving experience in Andover.

“Well trained guide dogs like Johnny can play a massive role in helping blind and partially sighted people navigate around town as can good design when it comes to kerbs, crossing and pavings.”
