Measles surges in UK years after flawed research

More than a decade ago, British parents refused to give measles shots to at least a million children because of a vaccine scare that raised the specter of autism. Now, health officials are scrambling to catch up and stop a growing epidemic of the contagious disease. (AP Photo/Owen Humphreys, PA) UNITED KINGDOM OUT - NO SALES - NO ARCHIVES
