A woman from Scarborough whose husband has Parkinson's Disease and dementia has now been offered a place in a nursing home for him.

We told you last month about Margaret Lister from Eastfield and the trouble she was having finding a home in Scarborough to look after her 80 year-old husband.

He had been in a care home before he went to hospital - but he now needs more attention.

Margaret has been talking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Jon Burke about her situation..

A spokesperson for North Yorkshire county council said:

“The county council’s adult social care service, alongside the NHS, has now identified a home that is able to meet Mr Lister’s needs and he is expected to take up that offer very shortly.”
