Public Health England has advised everyone who has not received the MMR job to vaccinate

The suspected mumps cases come months after hundreds of cases were confirmed among university students in Nottingham and in the midst of a decline nationally in the uptake of child vaccinations.

Vanessa MacGregor, a health protection consultant with PHE, said there has been an increase in suspected cheating cases, with teens and adolescents who have not had two doses of MMR vaccination "particularly at risk".

"Young adults who haven't received MMR or just a dose should make sure they take up the MMR vaccination offer," she said.

"However, it is not only students who are at risk and we urge anyone who has not received two doses of MMR vaccine to do so."
