A five-year-old boy suffers from a mystery illness that means he can’t eat any food.

Jude Carrington’s family are hoping they can raise funds to take him to America for intensive research into his condition.

 

The youngster, of Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire, has harrowing symptoms whenever he eats – including rashes, exteme abdominal pain and bloody diarrhoea.

Mum Joanna said: ‘It has a massive impact on his life – so much of people’s social lives revolve around food.

‘Jude’s never had a birthday cake, he’s never been able to have an ice cream when we come away on holiday.
