Grieving father accuses government of doing 'absolutely nothing' on meningitis B

The father of a toddler from Maidstone who died from meningitis B one year ago has accused the Government of doing 'absolutely nothing' since her death.

Faye Burdett was just two years old when she died. Her death led to more than eight hundred thousand people signing a petition backing her parents' campaign for all children to be vaccinated.

The Department of Health says more than one million babies have been immunised in the last two years. But campaigners want all children under five years old - not just babies - to be given the vaccine.

Abigail Bracken's report includes an interview with Faye Burdett's father Neil, and Steve Dayman of Meningitis Now. Viewers may find some of the images in the report distressing.
