Crawley MP Henry Smith met residents Nicola Pole and her daughter Katie Sellis-Pole at an event looking at how type 1 diabetes affects patients’ lives.

The day run by charity JDRF was called Type 1 Parliament. Mr Smith said: “Katie is a strong, engaging young woman and I’m grateful to her for highlighting to me the true impact of type 1 diabetes upon those that live with it, their families, and the country as a whole. It’s so important for children and young people to receive the right care and support to manage their condition.”
