      A drug user in Oxford is recovering from an anthrax infection after injecting heroin, say health experts.
      The case comes after two people who injected drugs died from anthrax infections in Blackpool in August and September.
      The Health Protection Agency said there was an ongoing outbreak of anthrax infections amongst drug users in Europe with 12 cases so far, five in the UK.
      The HPA says heroin can be contaminated by anthrax spores.
      There have now been three cases in England (one of which was fatal), one in Scotland and one in Wales.

      MY Brotherinlaw was a heroin user. He contracted Hepatitis C. Do I feel sorry for him? No way.
