A family from West Yorkshire have joined a national campaign to raise awareness of a rare genetic disorder.

Sarah Brooks and her daughter Enid, who has Cri du Chat Syndrome, have featured in a carpool karaoke-style video with other families.

Cri du Chat is caused by a missing part of chromosome 5. It affects the head, lungs and heart and causes learning difficulties.

The condition is also known as cat cry syndrome because infants who are affected often have a high-pitched cry that sounds like that of a cat.
