'Miracle' recovery of seizure baby Finlay Ritchie

Finlay Ritchie had brain surgery at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London just three weeks after he was born in Eastbourne, East Sussex.

Surgeons separated the two halves of his brain to cure him of the 100 seizures a day he suffered.

His parents Kali Peacock and Martin Ritchie were warned he might be paralysed on the right side of his body.

His mother said he was a miracle and a product of the "miraculous" NHS.
