A campaign is underway to get the UK Government to fund a £25m charitable trust to help nuclear test veterans and their families.

Thousands of servicemen were exposed to radiation during weapon tests in the 1950s and many say it's affected their own health as well as their family's. The Government argues this has yet to be proved.
