Burns victim models for UK clothes retailer Next

A burns victim has become a model for the UK clothes retailer Next.

Labonya Siddiqui was permanently scarred after a paraffin lamp exploded on her when she was eight.

The accident, which happened in May 2000 in Bangladesh, left the model with injuries on her lower face and upper body.

Labonya told BBC Breakfast how she overcame bullying to land a modeling job with the major high-street chain.
