Grieving parents call on MPs to extend vaccination program to save lives

The parents of a toddler from Kent who died from meningitis B gave heartfelt evidence to MPs today, as they called for the vaccination programme to be expanded.

Faye Burdett's parents released a picture of their daughter in hospital as she fought the infection after the 2 year-old died on Valentine's Day this year.

Her death prompted hundreds of thousands of people to sign a petition backing the couple's campaign for the vaccination programme to be extended. Sarah Saunders reports.
