Transplant patient Holly Pereira looks to the future

A woman who launched an appeal online for more people to sign up to the organ donor register is recovering from a double lung transplant.

Holly Pereira, 21, from Buxted in East Sussex, has cystic fibrosis and had been told she was unlikely to live beyond the age she is now.

BBC South East Today reporter Jon Hunt spoke to Holly about her plans for the future, along with her sister Phoebe, and Alex Forbes of the Donor Family Network.
