A woman who wants to use her dead daughter's frozen eggs to give birth to her own grandchild has persuaded judges at the Court of Appeal in London to allow her to continue her legal battle.

The 60-year-old, whose daughter died of cancer, lost an action at the High Court last year.

Two Court of Appeal judges were asked at a recent hearing in London to grant permission to the woman and her 59-year-old husband to challenge the June decision of Mr Justice Ouseley to dismiss their case.

Lord Justice Treacy and Lord Justice Floyd ruled on Wednesday that the couple should have permission.
