Video: Campaign to find long lost mother

This is the extraordinary story of a woman who was abandoned as a baby in a shop doorway - who has now launched a campaign to find her mother - 25 years on.

Victoria Vardy was left on the steps of the Co-Op in Chesterfield in March 1987 when she was less than a day old. She was later adopted but she now wants her birth mum to get in touch. She's posted a special message on the internet in a bid to find her.
