The open letter that last month Barbara and her husband Scott urged the public to sign, has over 100,000 signatures and was presented at 12.30pm today (Monday September 2).

Dame Barbara was expected to be there in person along with Scott, Alzheimer's Society chief executive Jeremy Hughes, director of policy Sally Copley and carers Nimisha Sharma and Manrata Shukla.

The letter asks the prime minister to sort out the devastating state of dementia care by immediate investment and address long-term reform for the social care system.
