One of Jasmin's kidneys has almost been completely destroyed by the eating disorder but she has been told she is currently too weak for a transplant.

Her mum Gill Barlow says mental health officials have so far failed to arrange specialist care for her, which has resulted in repeated emergency admissions to general wards at the Royal Blackburn Hospital.
