A little girl from the Isle of Man has received a new heart thanks to a donor.

Ella Wiseman, who will turn two-years-old on Boxing Day, had been on life support since June, after a stroke and numerous operations.

Her family launched a campaign via Go Fund Me to raise funds for the family's travel costs to Freeman Hospital in Newcastle from the island so they could be with Ella for her birthday.

A heart donation from a family has made it possible for Ella to see her parents early.

Her mother Amy posted a photo on Facebook of her daughter post-operation early this morning.
