British Ebola patient's parents 'proud' of son's recovery

The parents of the first British person to contract Ebola during the outbreak in West Africa say he is recovering well.

William Pooley, 29, has spent the last week in a special isolation unit at Royal Free Hospital in London.

His parents, Robin and Jackie, told the BBC they knew he was improving when he ordered a "bacon butty".
