Illegal sales of acne drug
BBC Inside Out investigates illegal sales of roaccutane, the powerful prescription-only drug used to treat severe acne.
Roaccutane works by suppressing the activity of sebaceous glands in the skin, reducing the amount of oil produced by these glands.
However, it can have severe side effects including depression and suicidal thoughts, and is only licensed on prescription from a consultant dermatologist.
As a result, there are concerns about the growing number of illegal online sales of the drug.
