Cards for people with learning disabilities which explain the holder's condition and how they can be helped have been devised by ambulance chiefs.

People with learning disabilities are more likely to experience "significant health inequalities", South East Coast Ambulance Service said.

The Aldingbourne Trust, based in West Sussex helped produce the cards.

The ambulance trust said the cards would help their staff treat anyone who needed them.
