Scotland's young carers at higher risk of mental health problems

A new study has found Scotland's young carers are more at risk of mental health problems than other children their age.

Thirteen-year-old Abbi helps look after her mother, Fiona, who has neuro-sarcoidosis which leaves her with joint pain and occasional paralysis on one side of her body.

BBC Scotlandl's Morag Kinniburgh has been listening to their story.
