Mother with Lyme disease has antibiotics stopped

A mother from Teesside says she's devastated doctors have stopped prescribing her and her daughter antibiotics to treat an illness she describes as 'life destroying.'

Adelle Huckins believes she caught Lyme disease when she was bitten by a tic.

Symptoms include tiredness, sickness and painful joints.

Adelle now has to raise money for treatment herself. Doctors say they're following national health guidelines for a complex condition.
