Her parents, Ann and Jerry, said:
“The medical staff here in Austria have been fantastic, they have been so helpful, patient and incredibly attentive. We cannot thank them enough for what they’ve done for our daughter.
"Our thanks also go to the production team who have been helping and supporting us, and everyone who has sent a get well message to Beth. We’ve been reading every message to her and it really does make a difference knowing that there are so many people wishing her well. Thank you for your support.
"Since her surgery, Beth has managed to walk a few steps whilst being assisted by the nursing team. She is still very tired from the operation but the medical team are pleased with the progress she is making. At the moment we aren't certain of the timescale for her recovery. We are taking each day as it comes and will update you when there is further news.”
