Measles cases fall in West Midlands

The number of cases of measles in the West Midlands has fallen, experts say.

NHS England said there were only three confirmed cases in the region in June, compared to 14 in May.

Dr Musarrat Afza, from Public Health England in the West Midlands, said it was too early to be certain if the drop was down to a catch-up campaign to get children immunised.

However, doctors say 10 to 16-year-olds who had not had the injection are still at "high risk" of catching measles.
