A mother has been reunited with her daughter after she was quarantined with people who may have had contact with the coronavirus.

It's been over a year since Vicky Sullivan saw her mum, but on Wednesday she was welcomed with open arms into her home in Leicestershire.

Full report by Jane Hesketh:

Vicky works for a technology company in the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the coronavirus first began.

She says when the news first broke she was desperate to get out of the city, but she also wanted to make sure that she didn't bring the virus back to the UK.

Vicky explains how she left almost all of her belongings in Wuhan and returned to the UK where she went into quarantine in a special NHS facility on the Wirral.

Vicky says "Everything they had when we were in quarantine was donated by the local community. They had set up a facebook group and organised so much, it was absolutely incredible. It restored my faith in humanity"

When the health scare is over Vicky intends to return to Wuhan, as she says that's where her company's customers are.

She added that it's not Wuhan's fault that the coronavirus outbreak happened and it could have just as easily began in London.
