BBC: Cannabis licence considered for Alfie Dingley, 6
A licence to allow a boy to legally take cannabis to treat his epilepsy is being considered by the government.
Six-year-old Alfie Dingley, from Kenilworth in Warwickshire, suffers up to 30 violent seizures a day.
The Home Office had denied the family's request for a licence as the drug is illegal in the UK.
But speaking in the House of Lords earlier, Health minister Baroness Williams said "every option is being considered" by ministers.
