Mother left in coma for 12 hours after childbirth

Angela Cottam, from Flintshire, almost lost her life when she gave birth to twin daughters. Doctors suspect a fingernail or hair from one of the twins got into her blood stream causing a massive allergic reaction.

She lost seven pints of blood and needed 22 transfusions. But now, she's back at home and recovering well. Ian Lang went along to meet her.
