'She referred to the judge as Mr Hero'

A terminally ill 14-year-old girl who wanted her body to be preserved in case she could be cured in the future, won a historic legal fight shortly before her death.

Zoe Fleetwood, the girl's lawyer, told the Today programme her client was incredibly happy when she learned her wish was to be granted.

She said the 14-year-old referred to the judge as "Mr Hero, Peter Jackson".
