A man has been diagnosed with long Covid - despite not even knowing he had had the virus eight months ago.
Dean Dobson first started feeling unwell in February, when the number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in the UK was still just in double figures.
The 29-year-old was sent home from work after becoming dizzy and struggling to breathe - and while a doctor mentioned that “people were panicking about coronavirus,” he was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection.
Dean, from Bedlington, Northumberland, continued to struggle with dizziness, breathlessness and exhaustion in the months that followed.
While going between GPs, ENT consultants and a private neurologist, he was told the problem could be vertigo, an ear infection or neurological problems.
Finally, in October Dean saw that as a health worker he was entitled to a Covid-19 antibody test.
Plessey Woods is a country park situated on the north bank of the River Blyth, in Bedlington, Northumberland. The park is accessed from the A192 in the village of Hartford Bridge, north of Cramlington and south west of Bedlington.
In 2016 Leading Link opened a youth ran Art Trail around Plessey Woods.
Around the trail there are wooden owls and painted snakes, including hobbit doors in the trees near the river bank.
The park extends over 100 acres (0.40 km2) of woodland, meadows and riverside, with a 1½ mile route circumnavigating these habitats and many smaller routes from this loop.
Free parking is available on site, as is a visitor centre with toilets and shop.
