Swansea measles outbreak tops 1000 cases

The number of measles cases recorded in the Swansea outbreak - which started last November - has passed 1,000, Public Health Wales said.

Some 1,011 cases have now been recorded and 9,000 people aged between 10 and 18 still need to be vaccinated.

In the last month, 4,000 people have received the MMR jab.

But Public Health Wales has warned that the country as a whole needs to replicate Swansea's response to the outbreak, with 50,000 10 to 18 year-olds still unvaccinated across Wales.
