A four-year-old girl who has a rare form of muscular dystrophy has returned home to live for the first time after spending her whole life in hospital.

Maham Naz, from Small Heath in Birmingham, needs help with all daily activities and requires 24 hour care. She is fed and takes her medication via a tube.

Over the last week a team from the children's charity WellChild have decorated Maham's bedroom for her return home. It has been designed to match her passion for pink and purple along with butterflies and fairies.

Her mother, Nomia Naz, says she is thrilled to have her daughter at home with all of her family.
