Respite care gives Kent teenager independence

Teenager Megan Payne has respite nurses from the Ellenor hospice, in Northfleet, Kent, who help her and give her parents a break.

The 18-year-old, from Dartford, has spinal muscular atrophy and needs assistance with most basic tasks.

She has been in a powered wheelchair since she was three years old.
