A mother of three who suffers from a rare sleep disorder has told how she has spent £3,000 in bizarre internet shopping sprees while slumbering.

Kelly Snipes, 37, regularly woke up in the mornings to find email receipts for items she unconsciously bought during the night. One day a delivery truck turned up outside her home containing a full-sized plastic basketball court she didn't realize she had bought.
