The mother of Eloise Parry from Shrewsbury, who died from a lethal dose of diet pills, wants her daughter's experience to warn others.

The 21-year-old bought the pills from the internet, hoping they would speed up her metabolism to quicken the process of losing weight.

Eloise took eight pills, eight times the recommended daily dose and died at the Royal Shrewsbury hospital on the 12th of April.

Her mother Fiona Parry told ITV News Central that the loss has devastated her family, but she wants to remain strong and warn others who may be thinking of purchasing weight loss pills from the internet.

Eloise's case is now being investigated by West Mercia police.
