Description

How worried should we be about strep A?

Eight children have died from severe cases of the bacterial infection. Adam is joined by Fergus Walsh, the BBC’s medical editor and Dr Susan Hopkins, chief medical adviser at the UK Health and Security Agency to discuss the disease, and what symptoms to look out for.

Also, as the RMT union says that extra rail strikes have been scheduled over the Christmas period, Chris dials in from a delayed train to give his instant analysis.

This episode of Newscast was presented by Adam Fleming and made by Tim Walklate with Emma Jacobs, Madeleine Drury, Miranda Slade and Cordelia Hemming. The technical producer was Mike Regaard and the assistant editor was Sam Bonham.
