Festival-goers are being warned to watch out for signs of measles ahead of Norwich's Sundown festival.

It's after hundreds of cases were reported to Public Health England across the UK this year.

It's being put down to people missing their MMR jab when they were younger.

The NHS say these are the initial symptoms to look out for:

  • Cold-like symptoms, such as a runny nose, sneezing, and a cough
  • Sore, red eyes that may be sensitive to light
  • A high temperature (fever), which may reach around 40C (104F)
  • Small, greyish-white spots on the inside of the cheeks
