An inquest into the death of woman who died after taking dinitrophenol, also known as DNP, has heard she was aware of the dangers of the 'diet pill'.
Eloise Parry's GP said that while the 21-year-old was not addicted she had "no apparent ability" to stop taking them.
ITV News correspondent Ben Chapman is at the inquest:
Eloise Parry's GP says she was a "very troubled but intelligent young woman," but who was "obsessed with the desire and need to lose weight"
GP said Eloise Parry was aware of the dangers of DNP, and while she was not addicted, she had "no apparent ability" to stop taking more.
The mother of Eloise Parry, who died after taking DNP, appeals to others not to make the same 'bad choice' that cost her daughter's life.
