Twins conjoined at birth celebrate first birthday

When Rosie and Ruby Formosa were born they were given just a 20% chance of survival. The twins were conjoined, connected at the abdomen and sharing part of their intestine.

They needed an emergency operation to separate them, but a year on, they have defied the odds and are celebrating their first birthday.

Tim Muffett reports.
