A delighted mother-of-one has praised a £3.99 'miracle' cream that she claims has 'cured' her daughter of a painful skin condition.

Paige Sweeney, 23, spent more than two years with dermatologists trying to find a cure for the eczema afflicting her daughter Evie-Rae, now three, but nothing worked.

The toddler would wake up every night, scratching herself until she bled, Paige said.

Then, as a last resort, the Nottingham-based mother spotted the £3.99 Childs Farm Baby Moisturiser on the shelves at her local Boots and decided to give it a go - to her amazement Evie's eczema quickly vanished.

A spokesman for the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) said one staff member tested positive for active TB in April.

The New Paper understands that the staff member, who is now on leave, works at the front desk and handles donor registration.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Health (MOH) said the staff member with active TB was started on treatment upon diagnosis and was given medical leave.

The HSA spokesman said that TBCU, which handles a national programme and is responsible for the prevention and control of the disease, has advised that there is "no risk to blood donors as they did not have prolonged contact with the affected staff".


Technology in farming: China's drone king DJI turns to farming

China drone-maker DJI is betting on flying machines that shoot pesticide instead of photos to fend off growing competition in the global remote-controlled aircraft market.

The world leader in the civilian drones sector is switching its focus from leisure photography to more professional uses for its unmanned aerial vehicles, and it sees agriculture as the future for the burgeoning industry.

Propelled by rotors, the tiny crop dusting aircraft can carry a liquid payload of 15kg to spray fields.

Piloted from a distance, one drone can cover the same surface as around 30 people and it does the job more efficiently, said Jiang Sanchun, manager of a small company that operates pesticide drones for farmers in northern China.

Another case of machines replacing humans.
