Eloise Parry's mother has urged others not to follow in her daughter's footsteps after an inquest into the student's death found she had accidentally taken an overdose of highly toxic diet pills containing the drug DNP.
Speaking outside the inquest today Fiona Parry said: "Eloise decided that even though she'd been told DNP was dangerous being slimmer was worth the risk. She was wrong.
"If anything it was even more dangerous than she'd been told. DNP - do not purchase, do no partake, do not please, death's not pleasant."
