Fiona Parry, 51, mother of Eloise pretended to be a buyer wanting a bulk order of diet drug DNP in a call to the dealer on Skype.

Istanbul-based dealer Orhan Topcuer first dismissed Mrs Parry's concerns about the drug's safety.

Mrs Fiona said, "It bothers me that there are people like you out there who are quite happy to sell this stuff. There will be people who have died buying the stuff that you've sold."

Following the 21-year-old's death, two websites that sold DNP were closed, but according to a BBC investigation, one website had reopened under a different name.

Together with Mrs Parry, the BBC confronted the man who runs the site from Turkey - Orhan Topcuer - who subsequently agreed to withdraw the pills.
