A MOTHER has blasted a school for refusing to give her daughter cannabis oil for her epilepsy.
Tannine Montgomery’s girl Indie-Rose Clarry, five, takes regular doses prescribed by a private doctor to treat seizures.
The mum, 30, has to make 45-mile round trips at lunchtimes as Indie-Rose’s teachers will not give it to her.
She gets it from the Netherlands with no import licence as it is not strong enough for border officials to confiscate.
But she said Riverwalk special school in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, called police and social services.
It said its policy is that the drug must come from a UK pharmacy.
She added: “They just kept saying it’s illegal. It’s not the case. My doctors have written to them.”
Home Secretary Sajid Javid announced in 2018 doctors can prescribe cannabis medicinal products for severe epilepsy.
