THE family of a teenager left brain-damaged after taking an ecstasy tablet have released a video showing how her life has changed.

Amy Thomson, 16, is now in a wheelchair after collapsing in June.

She spent weeks in hospital after reportedly taking the drug at a party.

The video posted on social media shows the Glasgow teenager in her wheelchair. She waves slowly at the camera and says: “Thank you everyone.”

The video, posted on her mother Tricia’s Facebook page, has received many messages of support.

Laura Anderson wrote: “You’re doing amazing Amy,” while Cheryl Mcphee posted: “Amazing Amy, keep up the good work and you will get stronger.”

Susan Forbes wrote: “So proud of you Amy and Tricia,” and Karla Shennan said: “Absolutely amazing Amy, well done girl.”

Amy’s family have said they are hopeful she will improve further with the right care and support, the Daily Record reported.
