Bug tot fob-off.

A TODDLER is battling for his life against killer bug meningitis after his mum was told by medical staff not to worry about purple spots on his body.

NHS Direct and a nurse at a GP out-of-hours service both told Toby Williams's mum that he just needed pain-killers, despite her suspecting meningitis.

But the next day she took the two-year-old to her GP in Broughton, near Chester, and he was taken to hospital.

Mum Sarah, 31, said: "It was terrible. I was ignored twice."
