Amy's nut allergy devastates family and friends

On 12 April 2014, ITV Daytime online producer Amy May Shead set off for a weekend with four friends in Budapest. Severely allergic to nuts all her life, Amy carried her EpiPen with her and felt confident she could deal with an allergic reaction should it occur.

However, on the third day of the trip, Amy ate a chicken dish in a restaurant which caused a massive anaphylactic reaction. Amy went into cardiac arrest on the restaurant floor - it took six minutes for the paramedics to revive her and her brain was starved of oxygen as medics tried to insert a ventilation tube into her swollen airway.
