Disabled children need more access to sport

This week, Newsround have been looking into what impact the Paralympics have had on disabled people's lives here in the UK.

A new report out from the charity, Whizz Kids, says that lots of disabled children were inspired by the Paralympics to take up sport but more needs to be done.

Our reporter Martin Dougan, who worked on Channel 4's coverage of the Games, looks at how things could change.
