MP PENNY Mordaunt has joined the fight against meningitis by becoming a champion for national charity The Meningitis Trust.

Ms Mordaunt said: ‘Meningitis is a devastating disease, so anything I can do to help survivors is hugely worthwhile.

‘I was very happy to give my backing to this cause as I was shocked to learn that around 500,000 people living in the UK have had meningitis and more than a third of children who survive it are left with after-effects.

‘This really is a disease that needs more attention.’
