Maria Neal wakes from coma after hearing wedding song

A mother-of-four has woken from a coma after hearing her wedding song.

In March, Maria Neal from Chalk, near Gravesend in Kent, suffered a severe stroke and a massive bleed to the brain.

Her family was told she would not survive, but she came round after hearing Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers.

BBC South East Today's Miranda Schunke spoke to Mrs Neal, her husband Steve and their daughter Kyrstie.
