Guernsey's Chief Pharmacist says he has a duty to the public over GcMAF

Guernsey's Chief Pharmacist has advised ITV News that people should not share GcMAF, or any other medicines.

Ed Freestone has been talking after a public meeting this morning in support of allowing the product into the island.

Mr Freestone says he feels for those counting on GcMAF but he has a duty to the public following the UK report warnings of serious risk.

He says if a manufacturer did meet all the regulation requirements then the product would be allowed, but that would 'take a lot of work.'
