Living with OCD: 'She is a prisoner to the illness'

A father says his 26-year-old daughter is a prisoner to the condition Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder - as they struggle to get treatment for her.

Manon Haf Lewis, from Carmarthen, was first diagnosed with OCD in 2009 after being treated in hospital for an eating disorder.

But her father John told BBC Wales' Newyddion 9 she still had not had the specialist care she needs for the condition.

It comes as an expert who heads an NHS clinic treating patients from across the UK said he believed OCD treatment in Wales was "woefully inadequate".

John Lewis described how his daughter's entire life has been dominated by OCD.
