An online video is raising awareness about how to tell if someone is suffering a stroke.

It promotes recognising the signs of stroke, using the word FAST as a prompter to spot the symptoms.

F is for face – has the person’s face fallen to one side, can they smile? A for arms – can they raise both arms and keep them there? S is for speech – is their speech slurred? And T is for time – act quick to get help.
