Student 'lucky not to be blind' after drinking fake vodka

A Sheffield University student says she feels lucky not to have been blinded after drinking counterfeit vodka.

Lauren Platts bought the bottle, which she thought was genuine, from her local off-licence for £5.99.

She told BBC Inside Out's Sarah Sturdey that she had suffered from vision problems and headaches ever since.
