The government has been accused of not doing enough to help those who were exposed to the attacks in Tunisia in June. Those who need mental health care are falling through the net because a proper system hasn't been put in place to support them, says the president of the UK Psychological Trauma Society. The government says it is doing all it can to help those who've been affected, but reporter Sima Kotecha found that Maxine Midgely (pictured above right) and her family, who were at the scene of the attack, had received no support. "I had a meltdown," Ms Midgely said. "I just didn't know where to turn." The attack survivor said that if it weren't for private counselling they wouldn't have had anybody. "It's a disgrace," Ms Midgely said. "David Cameron ought to be ashamed of himself."
