Disabled people protest at Spanish austerity measures

Streets in the centre of the Spanish capital were closed off on Sunday as thousands marched in Madrid to protest against the effects of government cuts on people with disabilities.

Spain has seen regular protests and two general strikes this year, but this is the first mass protest against austerity measures by disabled people.

Pascale Harter reports from Spain.
