THE fight to eradicate polio from the world will be highlighted at an awareness event.

Havant Rotary Club will set up a stall in the Meridian Centre in Havant on Saturday from 10am to 3pm.

The event marks World Polio Day. Widespread use of the poliovirus vaccine has led to an increasing number of polio-free countries, but there are still hundreds of cases every year in some countries.
