Toddler says 'I love you daddy' for first time

A toddler from South Yorkshire moved her parents to tears with her first words after she had an operation on her voicebox.

Two year-old Bronte Cassell from Rotherham spoke for the first time at Sheffield Children's Hospital.

She was born 25 weeks premature, weighing just 1lb 12oz, and had to have tubes fitted into her windpipe to help her breathe.

Her father Martin spoke to Radio 5 live Drive.
