The parents of a baby girl who survived meningitis are urging others to be on their guard against the disease. Cherie and Darren Thorn are helping to promote Meningitis Awareness Week which starts today.
It comes as a petition was handed in to Downing street this afternoon calling on the Goverment to introduce vaccines for the disease.
The Thorn's baby, Amelie, was diagnosed at just five weeks old, but early intervention and treatment helped her to make a full recovery. Others, though, aren't as fortunate.
