The UK's first purpose-built home for Armed Forces families to stay in while visiting seriously injured soldiers in hospital opens later.

The 18-room home at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, is known as Fisher House after a charity in the United States which is helping to fund it along with Help for Heroes.

The BBC's Jo Black met one of the current residents, Elaine Mercer, who showed her around.
