Mental health care in England to get funding boost

Mental health services in England will receive £1.25bn in the Budget.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg announced the plan at the Liberal Democrats Conference in Liverpool.

The Liberal Democrats say the extra cash will give the NHS the resources to treat more than 100,000 young people by 2020.
