A teenager from Flintshire has been accused of being a “fake” for using a wheelchair to cope with a rare illness.

Esther Lowery, 17, from Holywell, suffers from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a genetic condition which means her body tissue is not strong enough to hold her limbs in place.


She calls it an “invisible illness” because the symptoms go unseen by others.

Esther has made a three-minute documentary about her condition.
