The Cornish councillor who said disabled children should be put down has been re-elected.

Colin Brewer's comments sparked a wave of anger across the Duchy.

The Independent candidate ended up resigning in February, but later decided to stand for election.

Pirate FM understands the vote for Wadebridge East was so close, it had to be recounted.
