Parkinson's smell test explained by science

A woman who astonished doctors with her ability to detect Parkinson's disease through her sense of smell has helped scientists identify what causes the odour.

Researchers in Manchester said they had identified the molecules on the skin linked to the smell and hope it could lead to early detection.

The study was inspired by Joy Milne, a 68-year-old retired nurse from Perth in Scotland.

She first noticed the "musky" smell on her husband Les, who was years later diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
