Teenager's arteries 'crushed by her own body'

The family of a teenager who is bedridden and unable to eat without severe pain have said they want to take her to Germany for surgery.

Doctors in Leipzig have diagnosed 14-year-old Grace Jackson-Matthew with several conditions, some of which mean her arteries are being crushed by her own body.

Her parents, from Tunbridge Wells, have decided to try and raise £50,000 for reconstructive surgery in Germany, which they hope will mean Grace can live a normal life.
