Paralympics made 'no difference to attitudes to the disabled'

One man with learning difficulties has said that he has repeatedly suffered abuse in the street due to his disability.

Roger Grange told ITV News Social Affairs Editor Penny Marshall that as well as name calling by both children and parents he has also been physically attacked.

The 60-year-old said that he did not believe that the Paralympics has had any impact on the way people spoke to him or treated him.

Roger was forced to move from his home after the abuse became physical.
