There have been calls today for more money to tackle dementia in the Midlands.
Patients and family members joined health workers for a national conference organised by a Leicester charity.

More than 60,000 suffer from the disease in our region. That figure is expected to rise to 85,000.
Families at the conference today said there needs to be better support for carers as well as those living with the condition.
