Speaks French After Seizures

A mother-of-two from Birmingham has started speaking with a FRENCH accent after having the flu. Debie (CORR)Royston, 40, (pictured) suffered a series of seizures after a bad bout of flu. It caused her to lose the ability to speak and, when her voice did come back a month later, she was shocked to discover her Brummie accent was gone. She said: “I had a bad seizure and when it stopped my husband asked if I was ok. I had words in my head but my mouth wouldn’t work.
