Scottish surgeons make new ears for girl from Trinidad

A team of medics in Scotland are creating new ears for a 15 year old girl from Trinidad.

Kade Romain was born without ears and missing part of her ear canal leaving her partially deaf.

The medical team from the Spire Murrayfield hospital in Edinburgh, led by Ken Stewart, have given their time for free to construct the new ears.

Kade came to Scotland after meeting Robina Addison, a Scottish dance teacher, who was visiting the orphanage Kade was living in.
