Liver transplant baby's Christmas


A Devon baby, thought to be one of the youngest people to survive a liver transplant, has started to breath on her own before Christmas.

Lottie Bryon-Edmond underwent a seven-hour transplant operation in August, at five weeks old.

She had been been diagnosed with neonatal haemochromatosis, which caused toxic levels of iron to build up in her liver.

Her parents Chris and Julie said this would be their "best Christmas".
