“Know the signs” – that’s the message from a Yorkshire mum on World Meningitis Day – who spotted the illness in her 9 week old baby, Freddie.

It’s World Meningitis Day – and one local mum who’s 9 week old baby was diagnosed with it is urging other parents to check their children for signs of the disease.

Jennifer’s son Freddy was found unresponsive in 2013 – and although he didn’t have the notorious rash, it turned out he did have meningitis.

He eventually pulled through, but Jennifer’s told us it’s one of the words every parent dreads hearing:

“You think the worst. You think the rash, you think comas.

“It was a very traumatic experience, and with him being so young he couldn’t even tell us what was wrong.”
