Flu deaths have soared dramatically by 50% in the last seven days, with 27 reported in the last week, it was reported, according to new figures released by Public Health England.

Hospitals are bursting at the seams and are set to dramatically buckle as the Aussie and Japanese flu endemic gets worse.

This comes as Bethany Walker, 18, from Applecross, Scotland, died after contracting flu when she was struck down by pneumonia.

Ms Walker had flu-like symptoms at home and was airlifted to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness. But despite the best efforts by doctors to save her life, she tragically died last Friday.

She is the eighth person to have died in Scotland from the flu, with 85 having perished south of the border.

New statistics by heath experts showed a 78% increase in GP consultation rates for flu-like illness in the past week.

There was also an extraordinary 50% increase in the flu hospitalisation rate, and a 65% increase in people fighting for their lives in intensive care with the virus.

Disaster planners have warned the deadly flu pandemic could potentially kill up to 750,000 people in Britain.

Ministers are planning for a disaster scenario after almost every region in Britain has been hit by the bug.
