A widow who won a High Court fight to preserve her late husband's sperm was tonight "downhearted" after the UK fertility regulator was given permission to try to overturn the ruling.
Physiotherapist Beth Warren, 28, from Birmingham, had been "elated" after a High Court judge ruled in her favour following a hearing in London.
But her mood changed when Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (Hfea) was given permission to take the case to the Court of Appeal.
"Oh dear," she said. "I thought it was all over."
