A young woman who suffers up to 100 seizures a day has revealed she's regularly rescued by her dog

A young woman who suffers up to 100 seizures a day has revealed she's regularly rescued by her dog - who can recognise her distress despite never being trained.

Lucy Brown, 20, from Warrington, Cheshire, gave up her job and lost her freedom after being struck down by non-epileptic attack disorder (NEAD).

The condition has forced the former carer to leave the home she shared with her boyfriend of five years and move back in with her parents for her own safety.

But one thing that has kept her going through the difficult times is her pet dog Freddie.

Despite having no training Freddie acts like a seizure dog - whenever Lucy fits he licks and paws at her and brings her round.

The two-year-old Labrador acts as Lucy's safety net, keeping her out of harm when there is nobody else around.

Take a look at their amazing story in the video above.
