Steve Double, Member of Parliament for St Austell and Newquay has met with local campaigners in order to raise awareness about ticks and the dangerous Lyme Disease that can be transmitted via their bites.
Commenting, Steve said:
“I was concerned to hear that there have been more cases of Lyme Disease reported this summer in Cornwall than ever before. It is very important to be aware of the symptoms and causes of Lyme Diseases, especially in children. I was pleased to meet local campaigner Gail Hodgson and pharmacist Dimitar Antov, to find out more.”
