Strokes rising among people of working age, warns charity
There has been an "alarming" rise in the number of working-age men and women having strokes, a charity has warned.
In England in 2014 there were 6,221 hospital admissions for men aged 40-54 - a rise of 1,961 on 14 years earlier, a Stroke Association study shows.
Experts blamed obesity and unhealthy lifestyles for the rise.
