Alfie Dingley: Ex-minister backs cannabis plea boy
 

A former Home Office minister has appealed for a six-year-old boy with epilepsy to be given a special licence to use medicinal cannabis.
The parents of Alfie Dingley want the government to let him use cannabis oil, a banned substance in the UK, to help with his symptoms.
Ex-Justice Minister Sir Mike Penning said he had "huge" sympathy for the boy, who has 20 to 30 seizures a day.
