Sussex hole in heart girl is a catwalk model

A girl who had life-saving heart surgery when she was a baby has been modelling on the catwalks of major fashion shows.

Amy Lee, eight, from East Grinstead, West Sussex, was diagnosed with a hole between two major arteries when she was four months old.

At seven months old, Amy underwent surgery at Evelina Hospital in London to close the hole.

Amy's mum, Jennie, said: "To look at Amy you would never know the struggles she's been through."
