My brother caught lyme's disease a few years ago after a tick bite. I think that was in Wales but I will ask him to make sure. Fortunately he noticed the early symptoms of the disease and had the right treatment so it didn't develop into anything especially nasty.

Most of the UK is free of Lymes disease, though it is becoming more of a concern.

Most of Yorkshire and lancashire has lymes.

From the PHE* info on Lymes Disease:

Quote
Cases have been reported from most counties in England and Wales, with infection occurring most frequently in Exmoor, the New Forest, the South Downs, parts of Wiltshire and Berkshire, Surrey and West Sussex, Thetford Forest, the Lake District and the North York Moors.



*It's PHE now, rather than HPA, but they haven't updated the web-site.

Another thingie.  Sorry about the poor photo.  The thing was escaping fast.

Horse flies are cleggs up here, and that thing was about 5 times larger than a clegg.
