A national meningitis chairty has issued a warning for school children starting back at school for the new term.

Meningitis Now is urging parents, students and teachers to be vigilant and look out for signs and symptoms of the killer disease in the upcoming school term.

September brings the start of the meningitis peak season, and the charity warns that children under five are most “at risk” for catching the disease, while students and teenagers, between 15 to 23 years old, are the second most “at risk” group.
