      A Cornwall county councillor who quit after saying disabled children should be "put down" has been re-elected to the unitary authority.
      Collin Brewer, 68, won the Wadebridge East ward as an independent candidate with 335 votes, a majority of four after resigning in February.
      He said he stood again because he was asked to by people in the ward.
      Disability Cornwall said it was "shocked beyond words" and that it was a "sad day for Cornwall".
      The announcement of Mr Brewer's election was greeted by a mixture of boos and cheers.
      'Proud to stand'
      He said he had decided to stand again because he was asked to by people in the ward and "all over the county".
      "I have apologised, the people in Wadebridge wanted me to stand and I'm proud to stand for them.
      "People said with their votes they knew I didn't mean that. I resigned because of unbearable media pressure.

      Makes you wonder about some people in this Country, it's so sad to see things like this especially after something so cruel was said.

      Wouldn't trust him myself at all to protect a community, especially after saying things like that. Makes you wonder what is wrong with people these days, why would they want someone so cruel protecting their community.

      At the age of 68 some people might think that he could be getting a bit "past it"

      I wonder how he might feel about being put down.
