To combat what it describes as a 'woeful' lack of awareness about the disease, the charity Parkinson's UK has launched a new campaign to show the impacts it has on people's everyday lives.

They read: 'Parkinson's mixes up the messages the brain sends to the body, so everyday tasks become incredibly difficult.'

'Parkinson's might not kill you. But it can make living hell.'
