Dyslexia in farming highlighted by NFU in Scotland

National Farmers Union Scotland says there is a disproportionately high incidence of dyslexia in the farming community.

The NFU want something to be done to help dyslexic farmers with the paperwork that comes with the farming business.

The union has launched a dyslexia helpline and is taking its awareness campaign to a parliamentary reception at Holyrood.

Speaking to BBC Scotland, dyslexic Galloway farmer Sandy McCreath says: "I've got a lot of work to do to highlight this to make the powers that be realise that this is something that's not a quick fix."
