Bristol baby in lung virus treatment trial

A Bristol baby has become the first in the country to try out a new treatment for a common but potentially life-threatening lung condition.

Two-month-old Isla Williams was badly affected by bronchiolitis, an illness which causes the smallest airways in the lungs to become infected and inflamed.

Isla was the first child to be given a new drug that targets the virus that causes bronchiolitis.

Points West Health Correspondent Matthew Hill spoke to Isla's mother, Kayleigh Chambers, and the man leading the trial, Prof Adam Finn.
