A long Covid sufferer is using photography to help her live with the condition.

Tania McCrea-Steele says she has had three Covid infections and 13 immobilising relapses since she first caught the virus in March 2020.

The 47-year-old, from Wiltshire, said she struggled to get support on the NHS and could not afford to pay for private care.

So she turned to wildlife and landscape photography as a restorative aid.

"It's trying to find a light among the darkness and photography is all about light. It's my source of inspiration," she told BBC Points West.

Ms McCrea-Steele is among the estimated 2.1 million people (or 3.3% of the population) living with long Covid, according to the Office of National Statistics (ONS).

Just over half a million (507,000) had been living with long Covid for more than two years, the ONS said.
