Premature triplets home

A Northamptonshire family has reason to be cheerful in 2013 as they look forward to a year at home with their triplets - who have spent five months in hospital.

Stuart and Hannah Fraser are parents of the country's most premature surviving triplets. The babies were born 16 weeks early after Hannah had problems with her pregnancy.

They were so under-developed their skin was almost transparent, but now the family are making up for lost time at home together.

Triplets from Hartwell in Northamptonshire are home at last from hospital after being born four months early.

Abigail, Elouise and Dylan Fraser were born on 26th April last year and spent the first five months of their lives in hospital. The babies were meant to be born on 13 August.

The triplets were not expected to survive as their bodies were seriously under-developed and their skin was almost transparent.

Despite the situation being touch-and-go all three are now at home and are normal healthy babies.

Watch Anglia Tonight at 6pm on ITV1 to see more on the triplets.
