A transsexual from Nottinghamshire has warned she will end her life if she is refused hormone treatment on the NHS.

Debbie Davies, from Rainworth, is seven days into a hunger strike, and said she cannot afford to fund her treatment. Ms Davies, who was born as Richard in 1966, has been living as a woman for the past 18 months. Nottinghamshire County PCT has urged Debbie to stop the hunger strike and is currently reviewing its policy for patients who want to change gender.

Oh, BBC? You're missing a word from that first sentence.
