Neath sufferer: Anorexia pretended to be my companion

Children as young as four used health services for eating disorders in Wales last year, new figures show.

At least one four-year-old girl and at least one five-year-old boy attended child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) for unspecified eating disorders in south Wales in 2015-16.

Charity Beat said disorders "can affect anyone, regardless of age".

Abi Davies, 25, of Neath, who developed anorexia when she was nine, said it "manipulated" her thoughts.
