The youngest premature twins to survive in Britain

They were born at 22 weeks - the youngest premature twin boys to survive in Britain. One of them was given a zero chance of survival. But Ruben and Jenson Powell - and their parents - have been re-united with the medical staff who saved their lives.

Jennie Powell and her husband Rich, from Brighton, were on holiday at Newquay in Cornwall when she unexpectedly went into labour. The couple were rushed to hospital in Truro - but quickly flown by helicopter to a specialist neo-natal unit at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. She gave birth to the twins the next day.

Jennie says her two boys defied all the odds. Mark McQuillan reports.
