This request really takes the biscuit

I've just had the best request for a supporting letter of my career.

The young insulin-dependent diabetic had 1,000 cigarettes confiscated by Customs and Excise when he returned from his Spanish holiday. He wanted a letter from his GP to support the return of the said goods, as they apparently do not have any detrimental effect on his health.
