Collin Brewer admits disabled comment was wrong

A Cornwall councillor who said disabled children "should be put down" because they cost the authority too much money has resigned.

Collin Brewer made the comments to a Disability Cornwall member at a stall at County Hall in Truro in 2011.

Mr Brewer's comments came to light following a report by the council's standards committee after the charity made a formal complaint.

Speaking to BBC Radio Cornwall, he said: "I was wrong, I admit it."
