The number of confirmed cases of measles in the Swansea epidemic has risen to 588, says Public Health Wales.

The latest figure shows 47 new cases of the disease since Wednesday.

Health officials have welcomed a rise in vaccinations but estimate 3,800 children have still not had MMR jabs. Drop-in clinics are being held at hospitals in the area on Saturday.
