Swansea teacher talks of 'frightening' measles experience

A targeted MMR vaccination campaign has started involving more than 2,000 pupils at five comprehensives in Swansea and Neath Port Talbot.

Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board said more schools would follow in the weeks ahead.

It comes as the number of Swansea measles epidemic cases has reached 765, amid warnings it will continue to rise.

Isobel Stevens, a teacher at Bishop Gore School in Swansea, talked to Hywel Griffith of her own recent experience of measles, as vaccinations started there.

She said some of the symptoms had been "very frightening".
