BBC Report 1st May 2009 

Tests are expected  to reveal that a man has become the first person in the UK to contract swine flu without having visited Mexico. 

NHS clerical worker Graeme Pacitti is expected to receive confirmation that he picked up the virus following contact with Iain and Dawn Askham. 

The newly-weds, of Polmont, near Falkirk, were the first of the UK’s eight confirmed cases. 

They have spoken of how they feared they might die from the virus.

Mr Askham, of Polmont, near Falkirk, told the Daily Mail: 

“You try to stay calm but at the back of your mind there is the possibility that you might die.” 

The couple believe they caught the virus on a flight back from Mexico. 

The public are being advised to take precautions in a Government campaign.
