Meet The Girl With Sleeping Beauty Syndrome

Beth Goodier  22, from Stockport, Cheshire, is one of more than 100 young people in Britain diagnosed with Kleine-Levin syndrome (KLS) - known as Sleeping Beauty syndrome. 

In the run-up to her 17th birthday in November five years ago, Beth fell asleep ,and didn't wake up properly for six months. 
For 22 hours a day, she kept sleeping, only waking in a dream-like trance to take a little food and drink and go to the toilet. Little is known about what triggers the sleep disorder and even less about how to cure it. At the moment, Beth  is two-and-a half months into another deep sleep episode.

 Nothing - not drugs, loud noises, pleading or cajoling - will wake her. 
Over the past five years, Beth's mother, Janine, calculates that her daughter has been asleep 75 per cent of the time.

For describing the National Assembly as being peopled by a gang of unarmed robbers, the House of Representatives has lashed out at ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, calling him the grandfather of corruption.
