Jo Whiley: 'Learning disabled have a right to a normal social life'
People with learning disabilities have the right to "a normal social life", says Jo Whiley.
The Radio 2 DJ, whose sister has a learning disability, presented a concert for Mencap at London's famous Union Chapel to raise awareness of the fact that many in this group don't have chance to socialise past 9pm.
"I want to be able to stay out later" says 18-year-old Zoe Diprose, who herself has a learning disability and was a guest host alongside Whiley. "But if I can't get someone to look after me then I can't do it."
Find out what happened when Whiley and Diprose told a packed audience to leave before headline act David Gray had even started playing.
