Plea to ‘Free my anorexic girl from mental health ward’

THE parents of a teenager with anorexia have pleaded for their daughter to be freed after she was placed in a mental health 
facility by doctors.

Ruth Geddes, 19, and her parents went on the run from their home in Riddrie, Glasgow, on Tuesday to avoid her being taken into care after her GP sectioned her under the Mental Health Act as an emergency, fearing her life was at risk because of her eating disorder.
