Paralympic hero Sophie Christiansen will appear on a Channel 4 documentary on changes to the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) tonight.
The Maidenhead resident will appear on Dispatches to talk about the impact on disabled people when the DLA is replaced by the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) in April.
The change will result in about half a million fewer claimants in the UK.
The show, which will follow Ade Adepitan as he looks into what the changes will mean for disabled people, will be on Channel 4 from 8pm.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
