Thame Mum's Petition Call

A mum from Thame whose husband's brain damaged and blind after a rugby accident has just a week to get more than 30 thousand signatures on a petition against benefit cuts.

Tamsyn Wood relies on the money since it happened. She now wants to get 100,000 people to sign a petition by the end of the month after the Chancellor, George Osborne, announced an extra £10 billion of welfare reductions - but only has 65,000 so far.

She's now working with charities to try and get more people.
