Oxfordshire schoolboy tells his Tourette's story

Tourette's Syndrome is often characterised as outbursts of bad language.

But when eight-year-old Spencer Davies-Monk was diagnosed, his parents Richard and Hayley from Upper Heyford, near Bicester in Oxfordshire learned the condition is far more complex.

They also found little help and support as BBC South's Peter Cooke reports.

You can hear more of Spencer's story all this week on BBC Radio Oxford's Kat Orman Show between 13:00 and 16:00 BST.
