Meet the woman who is allergic to electricity.<br />
<br />
Jackie Lindsey, 50, doesn't have a mobile phone, television or laptop, she can no longer drive and she relies on candles for light and a gas cooker to boil water for a cuppa.<br />
<br />
When she does brave the outside world and all its technology, Jackie has to dress like a "demented bee keeper" in a special suit which has silver woven into the fabric to reflect the magnetic fields around her.<br />
<br />
But she was living a normal life less than a decade ago, running rental properties in Liverpool, going travelling and enjoying activities like canoeing.<br />
<br />
Now she lives like a recluse, cut off from most of society and avoiding almost all technology in an attempt to battle her condition - electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS).
