Organ recipient meets donor family

A remarkable meeting has taken place between a Bristol student, who underwent a life-saving heart transplant a year ago, and the father of his donor.

Will Pope would have died without the operation.

It was only possible because the family of 20 year old Tom Ince, also from Bristol, allowed his organs to be used after he died in a car crash.

It's believed to be the first time such a meeting has been filmed.
