Disabled comedian Francesca Martinez on disability cuts

Actor Francesca Martinez took a swipe as Jeremy Clarkson as she claimed 500,000 people could lose disability benefits.

The comedian, who has cerebral palsy and appeared in Extras, warned "anyone could become disabled" and said public attitudes were hardening with increased hate crime against those with disabilities.

She then debated her film with Michael Portillo who claimed some people received disability benefits who were not entitled to them.
