Legal battle over baby surgery

The NHS has refused surgery on a baby at risk of being left with a paralysed arm because her family does not have a right to live in the UK.

Sanika Ahmed, from Southsea in Hampshire, has Erb's palsy and needs surgery on her right arm by the age of nine months - just four weeks from now.

The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Middlesex said it was following NHS rules on overseas patients.
