It's been revealed that 12 young people are dying each week from undiagnosed heart conditions.

Leanne Haddrell from Tewkesbury was just 21 when she fell ill and died. Her parents are among bereaved families from the region meeting in Gloucester today to raise awareness of the problem.

They've contributed photos of their loved ones for a postcard which is being distributed across the UK to highlight the situation.
