Vigilance urged to detect type one diabetes

The family of a teenager who died from type one diabetes has made it "their mission" to raise the profile of the condition and the dangers of late diagnosis.

Peter Baldwin, 13, from Cardiff, died in 2015, just days after he was diagnosed.

His family are working closely with Diabetes UK Cymru to raise awareness of the symptoms.

His mother Beth Baldwin said: "We need to be much more vigilant if we're going to put a stop to completely preventable deaths".
