A mother who has had cannabis oil taken from her as she arrived at Heathrow airport has vowed to "get more" to save her son.

Charlotte Caldwell tried to bring the drug into the UK for her sick son when she had the drug confiscated by customs officers.

But she was not cautioned when she was stopped after a flight into London from Canada.

Her son Billy, 12, was given a prescription for medicinal cannabis oil last year to help treat his epilepsy.

The boy, from County Tyrone in Northern Ireland, suffers seizures and Ms Caldwell is worried the cycle of fits "will eventually kill him".
