SUN ALLERGY MUM NICKNAMED 'VAMPIRE' BY KIDS

While most Brits look forward to long hot summer days, a mum-of-six will be staying in the shade - as she is allergic to the sun. Laura Martindale, 26, suffers from a severe allergic reaction called Actinic Prurigo, which causes her skin to burn and break out in a rash when exposed to UVA and UVB light. At home, the full-time mum keeps the curtains and blinds closed during the day, and when she steps outside, she is forced to wear long sleeved tops and gloves, as well as high factor 50 suncream.
