by Saphora Smith, July 9th, 2016
An MP who was bitten by a tick at a village fete was diagnosed with Lyme disease after a chance conversation with a constituent.
Michelle Donelan, 32, the Conservative MP for Chippenham, noticed a rash on her forearm after she appeared as guest of honour at the Semington village fete in Wiltshire.
She thought nothing of the bite until a week later, when a man suffering from the tick-borne disease came into her weekly constituency surgery to discuss care options.
