Diamond created from hair of breast cancer patient

What could become the world's most precious stone has been created using a lock of hair from a young woman with incurable breast cancer.

Danielle Callaghan from Benenden in Kent cut off her hair before she lost it during treatment and donated a strand to the charity Against Breast Cancer.

A laboratory in America turned the hair into a diamond which is being used to raise money for life-saving research. Kerry Swain has the story.
