A mother from Bristol whose fifteen year old daughter died after being sent home from a mental health unit has addressed tens of thousands of protestors at a rally in London.

Nicky Romero's daughter Becky was found dead in July last year. An inquest found that neglect by the NHS service responsible for her, had contributed to her death.

Nicky Romero reduced many of the crowd to tears with her emotional speech in which she called for more funding for mental health care.
