The Driving, Vehicle and Licencing Agency (DVLA) has added two new health conditions that motorists need to declare before they can continue driving.If you've got certain kinds of health problems, such as issues with your eyesight or diabetes, it's possible that they could affect your driving ability and safety.Therefore it's vital that you let the DVLA know of anything that could be a potential problem - and failing to do so could see you slapped with a £1,000 fine and invalid insurance.Birmingham Live reports that two new health conditions have been added to the existing list this December that drivers should be aware of.

Any driver who suffers from fits or febrile convulsions must tell the DVLA.Febrile convulsions are fits that can happen when someone has a fever.

Signs and symptoms of febrile seizures include high temperatures, followed by the person making a moaning or unusual sound or becoming stiffened and unresponsive.These seizures are common in children but in adults, they could be a sign of another underlying health condition.

In most cases, these seizures are triggered by having a fever. The true cause of a febrile seizure is not clear, but viral and bacterial infections are usually associated with febrile seizures.The DVLA has told drivers they must tell them if they suffer from either of the conditions.

UN ramps up urgent humanitarian appeal for Sri Lankans
COLOMBO (News 1st) – The United Nations (UN) team in Sri Lanka and non-governmental organisations revised and extended their joint Humanitarian Needs and Priorities (HNP) Plan, which aims to provide life-saving assistance to 3.4 million people amid Sri Lanka’s worst economic crisis since independence.Since June, the HNP has been responding to the Government's request for UN-backed multi-sector support for Sri Lanka's debt and food and medicine shortages."Governments and donor agencies have helped the humanitarian community reach over 1 million of the country's most vulnerable people with cash, food, school meals, medicine, protection, and livelihood support," said the UN in a statement.The HNP—aligned with appeals from other UN agencies—has raised US $79 million for Sri Lanka thanks to landmark support from the U.S and USAID, Australia, Japan including JICA, the UN Central Emergency Relief Fund (CERF), as well as Canada, Denmark, Norway, New Zealand, Italy, EU, Switzerland, France, and with additional support from the UK, Germany, Thailand, Sweden, Georgia, Latter Day Saint Charities and private individuals and organizations."We are immensely appreciative of the solidarity the international community has shown with the people of Sri Lanka, including through their generous contributions to the HNP.
