This was down from 193 cases in May and "follows the nationwide rollout of the MMR catch-up programme", the organisation said.

Head of immunisation Dr Mary Ramsay said it was "still too early to be confident" that the drop in measles cases was a result of the campaign, "but we are making good progress towards the 95% target".
