I am writing in sheer disgust at the article about expectant mum Nichola Smith’s treatment by the local education establishment, for trying to ensure her unborn baby doesn’t risk any problems by keeping her son Keane off school while a virus is allowed to circulate there.

That virus is nothing short of nasty, as my wife and I know, having had it.

Since when, exactly, has any education establishment been qualified in the medical profession in order to say this will not harm Nichola’s unborn child?
