    Morven-May MacCallum says her life is still "completely dominated" by Lyme disease, nine years on from starting treatment.

    About 200 people a year in Scotland are recorded with the disease but the true number is thought to be much higher.

    The disease is a bacterial infection spread by a bite from an infected tick.

    Scotland's chief medical officer has written to all of the country's NHS boards and GPs urging them to be vigilant about Lyme disease.
