Acquired brain injury 'a silent epidemic' says charity

More awareness is needed of the "silent epidemic" of acquired brain injuries, according to a Belfast-based charity.

Brain Injury Matters said more than 2,000 people in Northern Ireland were affected every year.

Chief Executive Fiona McCabe said there were often no obvious signs, which caused extra distress and frustration.

BBC News NI Health Correspondent Marie-Louise Connolly reports.
