Jade: The woman who did not exist

Until recently, 20-year-old Jade Jacobs-Brooks did not officially exist - because she had no birth certificate.

She was born in Spain when her parents were on holiday and her parents were given emergency travel documents - but in the UK her father was told they would not be enough to register her.

She and her solicitor, Andrew Denny from the law firm Allen and Overy, spoke to the BBC about the impact it has had on her life.
