A Nottingham student will soon be reunited with the father she believed was killed in the Syrian civil war.

Doaa, 20, was stranded in Britain when fighting broke out and lost contact with her father but, thanks to the Red Cross, she will soon see him again.

Donna Boulton from the Red Cross said tears of grief turned to tears of happiness.

Doaa asked for her full name not to be used as she still has concerns for family in Syria.
