A BOY fighting meningitis in hospital is improving.
Nine-year-old Jack Midwood is in Huddersfield Royal Infirmary with what is believed to be meningococcal septicaemia.
But the Honley Junior School pupil improved yesterday and was able to sit up in bed.
His father, Chris, 39, said: "Yesterday was a lot better. He sat up in bed and was much brighter.
"There are still a lot of tests to be taken and it could be days before the results come through. He does seem better, but they have told us he could change again."
Jack went into hospital on Wednesday.
