Campaigners stage a peaceful protest over a Wadebridge councillor's controversial comments about disabled children.

Colin Brewer apologised and stepped down after saying they should be 'put down'.  

But since being re-elected he has been quoted as likening them to deformed lambs.

Police and council officials are investigating.

James Ball was among protesters outside County Hall on Friday morning: "They all want Councillor Brewer to resign. People look up to councillors because they want them to do things for them and for somebody like Councillor Brewer to come out with what he said is absolutely despicable.

"Resign now ... and never return to politics again. He cannot say those things. He cannot say them and think that the people of Cornwall are going to sit back and allow it."
