The former Wadebridge councillor who said disabled children should be "put down" has died.

Collin Brewer quit twice over the comments he made back in 2011 - apologising and insisting he did it to stir up debate.

A colleague says the 69 year old should be remembered for the positive work he did for the town over more than 25 years.

Mr Brewer insisted that he was tired when he told a charity worker, "disabled children cost the council too much money and should be put down."

The comments came to light in 2013, causing a storm of protest.

He was re-elected by a narrow margin but stepped down again.
