A Willaston couple have written an open letter to Party leaders ahead of the General Election, calling on them to commit to preventing sudden heart deaths in young people.

Alison and Robert Howells lost their 22-year-old daughter Ceri (pictured) from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS) 10 years ago.

Now they have sent a letter to Rishi Sunak, Keir Starmer and other leaders, calling for a National Strategy for the Prevention of Young Sudden Cardiac Death.

The letter has been signed and supported by many friends and family.

It comes as latest figures show every week in the UK at least 12 apparently fit and healthy young people aged 35 and under die of sudden cardiac arrest.
