A film made in Cumbria to encourage disabled people to vote will be distributed across the UK.

500 copies will be sent to disabled people and groups ahead of May's general election.

That's because the quality of the film, and message behind it, have been approved by the Cabinet Office, which has agreed to fund it.

The film called "Voting - hear my voice" was made at Carlisle's MENCAP centre.
