A young person's guide to living with Parkinson's

Every hour someone in the UK is diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.

Around a third of people with Parkinson's develop symptoms before the age of 65, and one in 100 before the age of 40.

A new book explores what it's like to live with the condition as a young person.

'Dropping the P Bomb' follows the journey experienced by Emma Lawton who found out she had the disorder when she was in her 20s.
