Devastated mum has daughter's cannabis medication confiscated -

We have been hearing from a Kent mum who says she's devastated, after cannabis medication that could help her severely epileptic daughter was taken off her by airport officials...

Nine-year-old Teagan Appleby from Aylesham can have as many as 300 seizures a day.

She was given cannabis-based treatment here in the UK at the end of last year, which initially helped - but she's got worse again in the last couple of months.

Her mum Emma flew to Rotterdam in Holland to pick up stronger drugs - but was stopped at Southend Airport and made to hand it in.
