‘Chicken pox' agony of Alex

WITHIN two weeks of having MMR jab, 18-month-old Alex Haydock began suffering from diarrhoea, high temperatures and a rash. When his mother Jane, from Winsford, Cheshire, took him to the doctor, she was told that he had nothing more serious than a dose of chicken pox.

However, the rash continued, Alex stopped talking and now, two later, the youngster is being assessed for autism. His mother said: "development just stopped. And now two years on, my poor Alex ca even start pre-school because say they can’t give him the attention he needs."
