Youth mental health care 'in dark ages', says minister

Children's mental health is the "Cinderella of a Cinderella service", according to Care Minister Norman Lamb.

Mr Lamb told BBC social affairs correspondent Michael Buchanan the youth service in England was "not fit for purpose" and he was "on a mission" to reform it.

He is launching a task force to look at improvements and a survey looking at demand and how the internet is affecting young people.
