A mother is calling for changes to be made to the further education system in Wales for young people with disabilities.

Carmel Boston had to campaign for nine months for her daughter Olivia, who has cerebral palsy, to get a place at Bridgend College.

Bridgend College says there are many other cases like Olivia's.

Carmel hopes by speaking out, it'll encourage the government to do more to help support those with disabilities who want to progress to further education.
