Family's disgust over benefits assessment

The parents of a disabled 18 year old say they're disgusted to find their son may need to prove he's unable to work to receive benefits. Liam Barker was born paralysed and needs a ventilator to breathe. He's been told he may need to attend a work capability assessment.

The Department of Work and Pensions says candidates found to be incapable of work, receive long term support.
