A SCOTS teenager who falls asleep 30 times a day is joining a class action to demand compensation from a pharmaceutical firm which made the swine flu vaccine.

Chloe Glasson received the vaccine in 2009 and shortly afterwards developed narcolepsy, which means she can fall asleep at any time of the day.

The 15-year-old from Kirkcaldy is part of the group suing GlaxoSmithKline, the makers of the Pandemrix vaccine, in the High Court in London. Campaigners say there are 38 children affected in the UK, each of whom could receive around £1m in compensation.
