New hope for 'locked in' girl, 9

A girl who was given four days to live after suffering a brain bleed is defying the odds 18 months on.

In February 2011, Eve Anderson, nine, collapsed at her Northumberland home and developed locked-in sydrome leaving her in a wheelchair.

She went from being a sporty, dance-loving youngster to only being able to communicate by blinking.

Her father Ian was told she would not survive, but now Eve is making progress by writing her name with a paintbrush. Sharon Barbour reports.
