Heart UK served a cholesterol friendly lunch at its base in North Road to spread the word about the health risks linked to high cholesterol.

Six out of 10 people in Britain face a serious health risk caused by high cholesterol. If left untreated it can cause heart disease and death.

Heart UK is raising awareness about familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH). FH is a hereditary condition which causes extremely high cholesterol. It affects approximately one in 500 people.

The charity's chief executive Jules Payne said: "This is a healthy area but it is still possible people do not know their cholesterol level."
