Meg Kingston: 'People see a wheelchair not person'

Disabled people are suffering from "hardened" attitudes as well as benefit cuts amid the debate about welfare reform, the first minister has said.

Carwyn Jones will tell a conference in Cardiff that the Welsh government is doing all it can to tackle prejudice and to help people live independently.

Disability Wales said disabled people were living in "daily fear" of cuts.

Meg Kingston, is an author from Rhymney, Caerphilly County, who has had MS for 20 years.

She told BBC Wales' Natasha Livingstone disabled people are swept under the carpet in terms of attitudes from the public and the media.
