Woman bitten by mystery insect has legs and fingertips amputated after contracting flesh-eating disease

Susan Buttery, from Highworth, Wiltshire, required a total of 60 operations to save her life after she suddenly became ill with flu-like symptoms and vomiting.

The 68-year-old had been bitten by an insect on the back of her head, which had caused a lump she believed would go back down, and had forgotten about it.
