Pupils at Bristol school screened for tuberculosis

Teenagers at a Bristol secondary school are being screened for tuberculosis after a pupil was diagnosed with the disease.

About 200 Year 11 pupils at Fairfield High School in Horfield, as well as some staff, are being offered tests between Wednesday and Friday.

The boy who became infected is expected to make a full recovery.

A letter to parents, from the school, said the risk of other pupils having caught the disease was low.
