Actress Sally Phillips has a 12-year-old son with Down's syndrome and a new documentary about the condition - she insists it's time for a big discussion about how we screen for it.

The Bridget Jones and Miranda star was live in the LBC studio with Shelagh Fogarty to talk about her show A World Without Down's Syndrome?

Her boy Ollie is 12 years old and Sally spoke about how the medical staff treated her once they realised he had Down's syndrome.

"They were really nice people, they felt very sorry for me and the nurse cried.

"But she thought it was tragic. My parents thought my life was ruined. I think I thought my life probably was going to be ruined."

You can see more of that in the clip above.
