The man who can't stop coughing

Nicholas PeakeNicholas, who works at the University of Central Lancashire, has been coughing up to 100 times an hour....for the past 13 years.

The 57-year-old's life has been blighted by the persistent problem and he has tried scores of remedies as he struggles to find a cure.

For a few minutes every morning he has peace before the coughing starts and then continues throughout the day.

The only way he can manage his condition is to constantly chew gum, something he detests.

Nicholas, who lectures in TV production, said: "I've seen various consultants, undergone countless tests and tried everything from acupuncture and homeopathy to new drugs but nothing has worked. "If someone said they could cure my condition for £5,000 ($10,000), I'd gladly pay the money."
