Lyme Disease

 
Lyme Disease is an issue that walkers need to be aware of. Sheep & deer ticks can carry the disease, and if a tick is not noticed or not removed properly, there is a chance that the disease could be passed to you. Lyme Disease affects the central nervous system and can cause paralysis. It can change your life forever.


Ticks Are Everywhere

Here's a short video of a sheep tick that found its way on to me in the Lake District. It wasn't on long, but I did have tweezers in my first aid kit just in case of a tick attack!
