'I had my uterus removed after NHS device'

A number of women are having to undergo hysterectomies to remove a sterilisation device used on the NHS, the Victoria Derbyshire programme has found.

The Essure implant is used to permanently sterilise women without surgery.

Watch the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme on weekdays between 09:00 and 11:00 on BBC Two and the BBC News channel.
