Pembrokeshire woman describes 'so severe' swine flu

A Pembrokeshire woman who contracted swine flu has described her case as "so severe" after she was treated in intensive care.

Helen Watts, 42, from Jeffreyston, spent a week in March in a critical care unit and is still not well enough to return to work.

She said she was convinced she contracted it because she did not get a flu vaccination and urged people to get the jab.

Along with her twin sister, nurse Sam Robinson, she is in the at-risk category as she suffers from asthma.
