Cannabis oil 'hope' for epileptic teenager from Manchester

A 16-year-old from Manchester is hoping to raise £30,000 to receive a new treatment made from cannabis plants in a bid to control his epilepsy.

Van Davies had his first seizure at the age of three, with the teenager now often suffering over 100 fits a week.

His parents say CBD oil, which is currently being trialled in the US, has had an astonishing affect on other children like him and "offers hope" to Van.
