A blind woman's sight has been restored in pioneering surgery at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital.

It involved using a powerful laser to remove scars on the corneas.

Kelly Killick, from Dunstable, who was born with a rare eye disease, is only the second person in the UK with the condition to be treated using this technique.

The hospital believes about a dozen patients a year will benefit from the operation.
