Imagine undergoing a routine surgery procedure and waking up with a completely different accent… that’s what happened to born and bred Texan Lisa Alamia who sounds English after being diagnosed with Foreign Accent Syndrome.

A few months ago, we spoke to Pauline and Jim Green who were fighting to bring their son Matthew back from Spain after he disappeared from their London home six years ago.

Parents Pauline and Jim join us to tell us how grateful they are to have him back in the country.
