Blackburn teenager home after heart transplant

A teenager from Blackburn is back home from hospital just two months after doctors gave her a five per cent chance of survival.

Emily Linaker had been on the waiting list for a heart transplant for several months, but the operation became urgent after her condition got rapidly worse.

Her mum says they feel incredibly lucky after a donor heart became available just in time to save Emily's life.
