Although tuberculosis (TB) cases across the country have stabilised, Public Health England says cases in London are continuing to rise at a worrying rate. New figures show 3,426 cases were reported in the capital last year - making up 40% of cases nationally.
The majority of London cases were among people born outside of the UK and many of these were young adults aged between 25 and 44.
