Minister: Wrong that carers feel hidden and neglected

The government's care minister says more must be done to help young adult carers.

Norman Lamb was quizzed for Newsbeat by 18-year-old Pippa Haines from Southampton, who's been a carer since she was four and won a Radio 1 Teen Hero award last year.

The Liberal Democrat said: "We've got to escape from this sense that you feel hidden and neglected.

"You should be open about it and proud of it, and supported in doing it."
