Pupils and parents were given advice on asthma when they gathered at an awareness event at City Hall.

Asthma charity Open Airways organised “Helping Bermuda Breathe” to mark World Asthma Day and spread the message about the condition, which affects more than 8,000 people on the island.

Organisers handed out free pillows, spacers and microfibre cloths.
