Students have worn animal and Spider-Man onesies to college to raise awareness of a rare genetic disease.

Abi Shrapnell, an osteopathy student at Nescot College in Ewell, organised the onesie day to support people with a connective tissue condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS).

The onesie day was held on Thursday, the day before the international Rare Diseases Day.
