Coronation Street: soap praised for recent story

The Epilepsy Society has commended the soap for raising awareness of the condition, with Amanda Cleaver, Communications and Campaigns Manager for the charity, saying:

'What was really interesting was how some of the other characters reacted to his seizure. They questioned his ability to look after the two young children in his care and David himself voiced concerns about whether his unborn child would inherit the condition.'

'The issues raised in the story highlight the public lack of knowledge about a condition which affects around 1 in 100 people in the UK.'

Viewers saw David lying unconscious the park, having suffered his first fit in two years while out with his stepson. Thankfully quick-thinking Max saved the day, but let's hope he doesn't have to do it again in a hurry.
