Coventry goes blue and green for neurofibromatosis day

Coventry City Council has sent a message of solidarity to people affected by a serious nerve condition by lighting up roads around the city today.

A stretch of street under the ring road near Far Gosford Street has been bathed in blue and green in honour of World Neurofibromatosis Awareness Day.

The council has also lit up Broadgate Arches.

Neurofibromatosis causes tumours to grow along the nerves. It is believed that 1 in 3,000 people are born with the most common type of the condition.

However, it remains a relatively unknown illness. To find out more, please visit The Neuro Foundation’s website here.
