    A woman from Cheltenham is warning people to be aware of ticks after contracting lyme disease.

    Vicky Hamlin has become housebound and chronically tired after a tick bite in 2016 gave her the bacterial infection.

    She used to travel across the world as a travel consultant but is now limited to her home because of the disease.

    She said: "I was actually in hospital quite a lot. I was blacking out, fainting, collapsing and having all these really unusual symptoms like seizures.

    "I Just kept being discharged from hospital being told there was nothing wrong.
