A woman facing infertility as she undergoes radical treatment for a bowel condition has been offered free private treatment to freeze her eggs.

Elizabeth Rose, from Margate, lost a legal challenge on Tuesday to try to force the NHS in Thanet to pay for it.

Now a London clinic has offered to store her eggs and the NHS will pay her expenses.

BBC South East's Claudia Sermbezis spoke to Miss Rose and her lawyer Merry Varney.
