A charity that supports people with learning disabilities in East Cornwall is facing closure because it hasn't got enough volunteers. The charity helps families, and was instrumental in helping to expose abuse at Falmouth's former Budock Hospital six years ago. Kathy Wardle has this report
Gerald Bevan's youngest son Russell was a resident at the Budock Hospital, which closed after a string of failings in 2006. He told ITV's The West Country Tonight that they would have been lost without help from East Cornwall Mencap, which now faces closure because of a lack of volunteers.
