    The parents of a woman from Gloucester who died after eight years of unexplained illnesses say a tick bite was to blame.

    Ian and Cheryl Ellis found their 39-year-old daughter Carly dead in her bed at their home in Finlay Road, Gloucester, on June 29.

    The pair believe she succumbed to Lyme disease, a bacterial infection spread to humans by infected ticks.

    I hope there will be a thorough investigation of the cause of death.
