Have your say

A MAN who was walking the streets with TB is now in hospital.

Gary Clayden, 46, has had a strain of pulmonary tuberculosis for 12 months but had not been turning up on a regular basis for treatment.

On Tuesday a judge granted Wyre Council an application which forced Mr Clayden to undergo treatment.

It is now understood he has presented himself at the hospital of his own accord and arrangements are being made for him to receive treatment.
