Most infections of Lyme disease occur in the New Forest, Salisbury Plain, Surrey and West Sussex, Exmoor, the South Downs, and parts of Wiltshire and Berkshire, stated the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
Other areas where infected ticks are likely to bite include the Lake District, the North York Moors, the Thetford Forest (Norfolk), and the Scottish Highlands.
What is Lyme disease?
The NHS says the bacterial infection can be spread to humans by infected ticks.
If a person has been bitten by an infected tick, a circular or oval-shaped rash may develop around the bite.
