A new report says a lack of sleep can cause long-term health issues and even death. Women are more likely to have problems sleeping than men. Researchers from the Sleep Apnoea Trust Association questioned 4,100 adults. Apnoea is when breathing stops for a short time during sleep. Almost half of the women did not sleep enough. This compared to 36 per cent of men. Women were also more likely than men to wake up at night.

Health experts warn that feeling exhausted due to little sleep could be a sign of a serious problem. Many women do not know about the dangers. Only a quarter see a doctor about this. A sleep expert said: "Often women think that feeling exhausted is just part of modern life when in fact it could be something more serious….It leaves women at risk of reduced quality of life. Bad cases of sleep apnoea can cause heart attacks and strokes.
