East Yorkshire hosts special event for migraine sufferers

Experts give advice on latest treatments for severe headaches at event.

Migraine sufferers in East Yorkshire have a chance today to learn more about the condition and the latest treatments available.

Five thousand people suffer from severe headaches in the county and Hull Royal Infirmary has become a recognised specialist centre for research.

A national charity is staging a special event this morning at Lazaat in Cottingham.

Una Farrell from the Migraine Trust says:  "We have a very high number of people seeking our help in Hull. So we thought it was important to hold an event so that people could come and meet some experts, neurologists, headache nurses but also other people with migraines. We thought it was an important place to come to."
