‘CARRY a stash of snacks’ is just one tip being given to diabetic people in Hampshire who are planning to go away on holiday.

The advice has been given by charity Diabetes UK.

Jill Steaton, south east regional manager, said: ‘There is plenty of travel advice on our website, from our ‘essentials to pack’ list to handy tips about carrying snacks in your hand luggage and other recommendations for airline travel.

‘Checking the cover and small print on your travel insurance, as well as carrying a letter from your diabetes team explaining your condition, are just a couple of many other useful suggestions to ensure people have a safe and healthy holiday.’
