'Horrific' treatment of my autistic daughter

Jeremy, whose 18-year-old daughter Bethany has autism, has told BBC Breakfast about the conditions she has to endure in a secure unit.

It comes as a group of MPs calls for an overhaul of mental health legislation in order to stop the "horrific" and inappropriate detention of young people with learning disabilities.
