'Injecting my contraception is empowering'

A medical student has said she finds it "empowering" to be able to inject herself with contraceptives at home, rather than go to a clinic or rely on the pill.

Caitlin Pley, who lives in Cambridge, has been given a year's supply of "Sayana Press" needles, and was taught how to use them.

Doctors have warned access to contraceptives was at a "crossroads", with services being cut across England.
