Premature baby couple from Bolton stuck in Spain

A couple from Bolton whose baby was born 12 weeks prematurely on holiday in Spain have said they could be stranded in the country for three months.

Karla Hornby and Jordan Jackson were by the pool on holiday in Benidorm when her waters broke.

She was taken to San Juan Hospital in Alicante where she gave birth to son Freddie by emergency caesarean section after his heart stopped beating.

Ms Hornby said it was a "total shock" but Freddie who weighs 2lbs (0.9kg) was "doing so well".
