Premature baby Ellizeah Lyons stranded in Spain


A woman who had to have an emergency caesarean while on holiday in Spain says she needs to raise £12,000 to bring her daughter home.

Zowie Lyons, of Horsforth, Leeds, was 27 weeks pregnant when she went to Alicante with her partner Sam Hilton in February, without any travel insurance.

She went into labour on the second day of their holiday, giving birth to Ellizeah who weighed just 2lbs (1kg).

Ellizeah has had three operations in Spain and Ms Lyons told BBC Look North she now needs another.
