MP raises money for condition he suffers from

Huw Irranca-Davies, Ogmore MP, is preparing to walk 50 miles when he turns 50 next month in an effort to raise awareness of a condition called Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS).

The debilitating condition is a type of arthritis that can affect people as young as 15. Mr Irranca-Davies, who suffers from AS himself, says he was initially misdiagnosed but with exercise and medicine he is keeping it under control.
