Using liquid nitrogen in cocktails "should be banned forthwith", an MP has said.

David Morris, the Conservative MP for Morecambe and Lunesdale, said the case of 18-year-old Gaby Scanlon, who remains in hospital following emergency surgery to remove her stomach after drinking a cocktail containing the liquid, was "a shocking incident".

Lancaster University's Prof Shaun Fisher said the use of liquid nitrogen in drinks had the potential to be "very dangerous".
