'It comforts me that my organ donor son helped others'

As the NHS considers preventing families from overriding the consent of people who have signed the organ donor register, Ali Carter tells Fergus Walsh it is a comfort to her that her son, Lee, helped other people by donating his organs after his death.

Lee lost his life after being involved in a road accident in February 2000.

He carried an organ donor card and his mother, Ali, said she believed families should respect their loved one's wishes.
