        Football supporters travelling to Euro 2008 may be at risk of catching measles, health officials have warned.

Significant outbreaks are occurring in Switzerland and Austria, the two countries hosting the competition this summer, Europe-wide figures show.

       A team of vaccine experts is currently conducting a risk assessment in Austria just eight weeks before the tournament.

        The experts warned people to make sure they are vaccinated against the highly contagious disease.

Figures from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) show more than 1,300 measles cases were reported across Europe in the first quarter of 2008, compared to less than 800 in the same period last year.
