TV star opens IVF centre in Cambridge

Guest of honour: Television presenter Gabby Logan

Television presenter Gabby Logan has officially opened a new IVF centre in Cambridge - now the largest NHS funded fertility clinic in the East.

There was also a personal reason behind the visit for the sports presenter, as she became pregnant with twin boys through IVF treatment.

Opened to patients in September, the centre is a purpose-built unit using the very latest science and research with experts from Cambridge University and Addenbrookes Hospital.

The City has a rich history of pioneering fertility treatment.

In 1978 Louise Brown was the first test tube baby - conceived when the egg was outside the body.

The treatment was pioneered by Patrick Steptoe and Robert Edwards who set up the countries first IVF clinic at Bourn Hall in Cambridge two years later.
