The number of young people in Warwickshire admitted to hospital because they have self-harmed has doubled in the past three years.

And almost 18 per cent of pregnant women in the county continue to smoke up until they give birth.

The figures come from the Public Health England (PHE) Child Health Profiles 2014, which were published last week and show that since 2007 to 2010, rates of young people aged ten to 24 admitted to hospital due to self-harm has gone up from 190 per 100,000 to 380 per 100,000 in 2010 to 2013. Nationally, the figure has remained around 380.
