62,000 people in the UK have a faulty gene which puts them at a high risk of heart disease.

Lizzie Jones lost her husband when he suffered a cardiac arrest whilst playing rugby.

He had an undiagnosed condition which meant his heart was three times the size it should have been when he died.

Lizzie now campaigns for all athletes to be screened and says the tests completed so far have already detected a number of people with heart conditions.
