Parents' Christmas hopes for teenage daughter in coma

A mother and father from Sussex have said they are praying their 16-year-old daughter - who was involved in a car crash - will wake up in time for Christmas.

Lauren Hills was placed in a medically induced coma after the crash in October. It happened as she travelled to study at Plumpton Agricultural College.

Her 21-year-old boyfriend was also injured, but is now back home undergoing treatment for his injuries.
