Couple thank city for rallying round for last-minute wedding

Maria Simpson made a miraculous recovery after the wedding Photo:

When Maria was given five days to live, she knew she wanted to get married to her partner of 13 years, Carl Simpson.

Maria, from Hull, has had the condition Lupus since she was 6. It can mean healthy organs are attacked by the immune system.

In 2015, she had severe pains while Carl catered at a music festival. Her illness led to septicaemia, and she went into a coma at Hull Royal Infirmary. When she woke, doctors said she had around five days to live.

That was when Carl put out a call on social media. In two days, they had everything they needed to put on a wedding at the hospital's chapel.
