Ms Trevelyan said: “It was a colourful delight to join the North Northumberland branch of the National Autistic Society and families from across Berwick walking to celebrate the positivity of neurodiversity.

“My autistic constituents, just as with all neurodiversity, bring amazing and varied skills to our community. From study, to work, and much beyond, it’s time to assume that they can!”
