Liverpool heart transplant toddler Jack Morris goes home


A toddler from Liverpool, who spent seven months in hospital waiting for a heart transplant, is well enough to go home.

Eighteen-month-old Jack Morris was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy which means his own heart did not pump blood around his body properly.

He was kept alive by an artificial heart before a donor heart became available in September.

Jack's mother, Laura Campbell, said: "I can't wait to be a family again, I'm just so excited."
