A couple who used IVF to conceive said they considered moving house to better their access to fertility drugs and expressed concern over how the IVF postcode lottery will affect their future.

Phillip explained: "It's a bit sad to think now that we can live on one side of the street, have everything that a child could possibly want and on the other side is an identical family like ours and we get one, they get three."
