Toddler goes home for the first time

A three-year-old girl who's been in hospital ever since she was born - is finally home tonight. Maisie Harris has a very rare condition that means her brain doesn't tell her when to breathe.

But at last, with the help of a portable ventilator, Maisie has been able to leave Great Ormond Street to start a new life in Gillingham. Laura Plumer reports, speaking to Maisie's father, Andrew; Maisie's mother Rachel Bridger; and ward nurse Kate Harkus.
