Autistic girl who was locked up 24/7 now thriving with bespoke care.

The father of an autistic girl who was locked up 24 hours a day with little human contact says he feared his daughter was "going to be locked away forever".

Jeremy exposed the scandal of his daughter's treatment on Sky News almost a year ago.

A shocking video of Jeremy holding Beth's hand through a hatch in a door prompted an inquiry into the teenager's care and led the Health Secretary to promise she would be released by Christmas.

Beth now lives in an open plan unit with bespoke care designed to respond to her sensory needs.
