All first year students due to study in Southampton will be immunised against meningitis after three freshers died from the disease there last year.

The programme of mass immunisation against group C meningitis has been recommended by Dr Mike Barker, the city's consultant in communicable diseases.

He believes the jabs are necessary "as a local response to a locally identified health need".
