    Disney Film The Lone Ranger

    The new Disney film The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp, opens tomorrow and it's been getting mixed reviews. But there is one group whose reaction has been very negative... and that's because the baddie in the film - Butch Cavendish - has a scar on his lip that is made up to look like a cleft lip.  Georgina Wade is from the Cleft Lip and Palate Association of Ireland & she joins me now in studio.
