'Am I just going to pack it in?' - Life as a disabled student

Campaigners say they fear that without help disabled students will be unable to cope with University life.

There has been an increase in disabled undergraduates in recent years but fewer than 15% of disabled people have a degree, a much lower percentage than the general population.

The government is also making changes to disabled students' allowances, which the National Union of Students is fighting.

John Maguire reports from Norwich.
