Australian couple abandon surrogate Down's Syndrome baby

A campaign for a baby with Down's Syndrome who was left behind by his Australian parents has raised over A$150,000 ($140,000; £83,000).

The couple left Gammy with his surrogate mother in Thailand, but took his healthy twin sister.

The six-month-old has a congenital heart condition, a lung infection and is in a Thai hospital for urgent treatment.

There has been an angry reaction on social media, as Phil Mercer reports from Sydney.
