A YORK car dealership is hoping to attract more disabled customers after sending two of its sales staff on a course to highlight ways in which vehicles can be adapted.

Anita Wood and Mike Barber, of Monks Cross-based Polar Ford were among the first to attend a new training course which has equipped them with the knowledge and skills to understand the needs of disabled motorists.

A Polar Ford spokesman said: "As a result of our training we now have the knowledge and experience to offer our local disabled customers a more comprehensive and personal service, enabling them to buy the most appropriate form of transport for their needs."
