Full Report: Teesside family's Lyme disease appeal

A family is calling for the Department of Health to change the UK guidelines on a disease they say is destroying their lives.

Adelle Huckins, from Teesside, says she contracted Lyme disease from a tick bite when she was just 11-years-old.

Twenty years later she has only just been diagnosed - and says the disease may have been passed onto her daughter in the womb.

She now fears her other children may have it too.
