Widow's High Court bid to stop her frozen embryos being destroyed

The widow of a war veteran is going to the High Court to stop the couple's frozen embryos being destroyed.

Samantha Jefferies from Sussex says it is unjust that the medical profession could take ownership of the couple's embryos and decide what should happen to them.

The consent the couple gave for the storage of the embryos expired - after her husband Clive's sudden death in 2014. Sarah Saunders went to meet her.
