A Walsall mother campaigning for all children to be vaccinated against Meningitis B has arrived at Parliament where she will give evidence to MPs this afternoon.

Claire Timmins' seven-year-old son Mason died after suddenly falling ill in December 2013.

At the moment only newborns receive the vaccine.

A petition signed by more than 800,000 supporters calls for it to be made available for all children up to the age of eleven.
