Help for MS sufferers

A Gloucestershire charity is helping sufferers of Multiple Sclerosis who get mistaken for being drunk.

'Speakeasier' was set up by Cheltenham MS sufferer Steve Brisk, to help people with the condition.

He says some people are being turned away from bars because they are wrongly thought to be drunk, when slurred speech is actually one of the symptoms.

Steve told Heart more about the cards:

The credit-size cards come with the message:

''please help me,  I'm not drunk or brain damaged, my speech is slurred because I have have Multiple Sclerosis.
