People in Wales have the lowest understanding of Parkinson's disease in the UK, a charity claims.
Parkinson's UK is now launching an 'awareness drive' to show the effects of the condition.
The research, published today, found:
- Parkinson's affects 6,000 people in Wales - one in 500 of the population
- 83% of Welsh people have little or no knowledge of the condition - above the UK average of 77%
- 16% of people in the UK say they'd feel annoyed, embarrassed or uncomfortable to encounter someone with a tremor
2,059 people around the UK were interviewed last month.

The charity says the increase is partly due to people calling for help sooner, instead of attempting to rescue themselves.
