South Tyneside woman calls for more organ donors

A woman from South Shields whose baby died when she was 14 weeks old, has launched a campaign to get more names on the organ donor register.

Sharon Eckert's daughter Miley was born with a heart defect and needed a heart transplant to survive.

She died in November 2012 before an organ was donated.

Now, Ms Eckert is taking a signed petition to Downing Street in the hope of getting more people to donate their organs and save more lives.
