Disability Row Councillor: Mum Visits Number Ten

(Updated 9:16am 14th May 2013)
A Newquay mum goes to Number Ten after the councillor who said disabled children should be put down was re-elected.
Collin Brewer resigned his Wadebridge East seat after making the controversial comments.
Mr Brewer has apologised and insisted he did not mean the remarks but campaigners have made fresh calls for him to quit after his re-election.
Hayley Goleniowska is meeting Samantha Cameron on Tuesday and says she will raise the issue.
Her daughter Natty has Down's Syndrome and won Pirate FM's Child of Courage award: "A person in public office with a microphone, you can't say and think this way if you're a councillor or a teacher or a police officer, you simply can't.
"Disability groups and families such as ourselves are going to be putting Colin's every move under the microscope from hereon in and we will be looking to see if he's going to get involved in a positive way to work with disability groups and families."
After he was re-elected Collin Brewer told Pirate FM he wants to get on with the job: "I've been a councillor for the last 26 years. OK, I made one mistake. People who can say if throughout their career they made just one mistake, they'd be very fortunate.
"How many times do I apologise. I've done it on radio, I've done it on TV, and I've done it in the press. What part of apology don't people understand? I don't know what to do next."
