PM to write to mother of disabled girl Celyn Vincent

The prime minister has said he will write to a woman who says she may have to put her severely disabled daughter into care, as she can no longer cope.

Riven Vincent, from Bristol, posted a message on the Mumsnet website saying her local council had told her it could not provide more help.

Her six-year-old daughter Celyn is blind, quadriplegic and has cerebral palsy and epilepsy.

David Cameron had visited her during the general election campaign.

Andy Moore reports.
