Thousands sign petition after mum shares image of girl's meningitis B

A mother has shared an image of her daughter before her death from meningitis to back a campaign for vaccines to be given to all children.

Faye Burdett, aged two, from Maidstone, Kent, died on Valentine's Day after fighting the infection for 11 days.

Her family said they were enduring "a pain you cannot describe" after the toddler contracted meningitis B.

Their photographs of Faye, including one of her in hospital, have been widely shared on social media.
