A woman from Ashford who contracted Lyme Disease after being bitten by a tick is trying to raise awareness of the condition. Sarah Bignell was bed-bound for months and left in agonising pain after being bitten on a trip to the Scottish Highlands.
David Johns has our report, speaking to Sarah Bignell as well as Dr Sandra Pearson from Lyme Disease Action.
