New heart for Summer brings new year joy

A two-year-old girl and her family are looking forward to 2013, after spending most of last year waiting in hospital for a heart transplant.

Summer Carss from Shilbottle in Northumberland is now starting to walk and talk after being rushed to hospital last Christmas.
