A Worcester student who had four cardiac arrests in one night has defied her doctors to pursue her dream of becoming an actress.

Penny Ashmore, 19, was taken ill in April last year.

Her father performed CPR and Penny later underwent two operations. She's now studying at the Royal Central School for Speech and Drama in London.
