Lorna Lambden's father: 'Drugs too readily available'

Investigators are cracking down on the multi-million pound trade in fake and unlicensed medicines, as concerns grow over potential health risks.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulation Agency says more than a million doses of medicines, worth approximately £2m, have been seized from the UK's postal service and ports during its latest crackdown.

Roy Lambden's daughter Lorna, a young paramedic, died last December after taking a drug she bought on the internet to help her sleep after shifts.

In an interview with the BBC's Tom Symonds Mr Lambden described his daughter and said: "You don't realise the dangers of prescription drugs. There's a reason there is a prescription."
