Trevor Phillips 'sickened by mockery' of disabled MP

Equalities chief Trevor Phillips has told the BBC he felt "physically sick" at reports that a Conservative MP with cerebral palsy was mocked by other MPs.

Paul Maynard told the Times Labour MPs had pulled faces at him in the Commons, saying he felt they were "taking the mick out of my disability".

Mr Phillips told the BBC Speaker John Bercow should look into the matter.
