Video: CBeebies Cerrie on disability prejudice
Children's TV presenter Cerrie Burnell presented a short film on disability prejudice in the media on BBC1 last night.
Cerrie, 29, who was born with one hand missing, reportedly upset children with her non-symmetrical look when she turned up on the popular pre-schoolers channel CBeebies recently
As a result of the headlines, and the revealing debate behind them, early evening magazine programme The One Show asked her to investigate the wider story.
"Fear often comes from ignorance, so I believe the only way for society to accept disability ... is surely for there to be better representation on screen." says Cerrie.
