Call for change to baby transplant laws

A couple from Wolverhampton are calling for an urgent change to organ transplant rules, as their baby son fights for life.

Six-month-old Ryan Brookhouse needs a heart transplant and has spent the last three months at a specialist hospital in Newcastle.

UK rules stop babies under two months old becoming organ donors.

Ben Godfrey spoke to Kaylee Hickman, Ryan's mother, Dr Richard Kirk, a paediatric cardiologist with the Freeman Hospital and Gary Brookhouse, Ryan's father.
