Campaign highlights lung disease dangers

The campaign aims to encourage people to quit Credit: ITV West

The anti-smoking group, Smokefree South West has begun a hard-hitting advertising campaign to get people to give up. It's being backed by sisters Sylvia Beever and Pat Bayley from Bath.

They were both smokers but Pat quit when her sister fell seriously ill with chronic lung disease. There are 90 thousand people in the region being treated for the condition but it's believed that there are another 55 thousand who are ignoring the symptoms.
