Teenager suffers from hiccups for 10 weeks

Emily Marsh has suffered from hiccups for the past ten weeks, despite trying a variety of home remedies.

Speaking on BBC Breakfast, the 13-year-old said she had tried to cure it by holding her breath, breathing into a paper bag and eating a spoonful of sugar.

The student said that she had undergone many medical tests, but doctors had not found an explanation for her long-lasting hiccups.
