Scots Cannabis oil smuggling mum visited by police

A Scottish mum who admitted smuggling cannabis oil into the country to give to her six-year-old son has been visited by police.

Lisa Quarrell, a former police officer, brought the medicine into the country illegally to treat her son Cole who has a rare form of epilepsy.

She fears she is now facing child protection proceedings as a result.

"It's terrifying", she said. "But there was no choice as far as I was concerned."
