Are disability hate crimes ignored?
A former director of prosecutions has said victims of disability hate crime are being failed by the police and the courts.
Lord Ken MacDonald described the issue as a "scar on the conscience of the criminal justice system".
Figures show that of the people who felt they were targeted because of their disability, only 1% of cases were treated as a hate crime by the courts.
