The parents of a five-year-old boy from Devon have fulfilled his dying wish by getting married at his bedside at Bristol Children's Hospital.

Corey Edwards passed away last night, but not before seeing his mum and dad make history. Craig and Jemma Edwards tied the knot last week after being given special permission so that Corey, who had a severe heart condition, could be part of their day.
