Indian woman on diet of rusty nails
A woman in eastern India is said to live on rusty nails and screws.

Pampa Ghosh began her strange diet three months ago and now eats nuts and bolts, glass and stone.

Ghosh, from Siliguri in West Bengal, told Asian News International; "For the past three months, I have been eating pieces of glass, bolts and stones.

"I really like it. Doctors have told me to quit, but I like it too much to stop now."

Her mother Bharati said she was shocked when she found out what her daughter was eating.

She said: "I thought I will not be able to save my daughter's life as she is eating things such as nuts and bolts and glass. That is when I took her to the doctor."
