Fighting ME

Apart from calling a 14-year-old female brown-belt an expert (when will this nonsense ever stop...), this is a nice, inspirational piece about a young teen fighting ME (chronic fatigue syndrome) through karate.

The karate student has been battling the condition - once termed 'yuppie flu' for five years.
The symptoms reportedly include muscle pain, exhaustion and poor concentration. It is estimated that about 25,000 children suffer from it.

As the report says: Jessica, 14, of Carrbrook (near Stalybridge) is determined to beat it.
