From the morning meeting...

Here’s a look at just some of what’s at the top of the news agenda today…

Meridian East:
A 9-year-old boy from Kent claims he is suffering at the hand of school bullies. His mother tells us of his distress and says he is finding it hard to sleep and eat. His school has allegedly done little to stop the bullies.

Meridian South:
Three generations of the same family on the Isle of Wight are all suffering from a rare genetic condition known as Fabry Diease that leaves them in severe pain. The Wavell family now want to raise awareness of the condition ahead of a national day of fundraising.

Thames Valley:
In the second of our series to mark Ramadan - our reporter Amy Lewis has been fasting for the first time with a Reading family, to understand the self discipline involved in the holy festival.

Plus it’s voting time for the ITV Carer of the Year Awards. All week we have been looking at the nominations throughout the country and now it’s up to you to vote for the best.

Tune in to Meridian and Thames Valley news tonight at 6PM to see more of the above stories and to find out how to vote for the regions Carer of the Year.
