СКРИПТ УРОКА:

Thousands of patients arrive every morning at Delhi's hospitals suffering the high fever and terrible joint pain that have earned dengue its alternative name – break bone fever. Tempers are running high. 25,000 people in India have been infected so far this year, according to the official figures. But the real number is reckoned to be hundreds of times higher.

Operation Martillo in action – moving 1,100 kilograms of cocaine and over 2,000 kilograms of marijuana. And then offloaded to a human conveyor belt on Miami Beach. The haul makes it a record year for the US coastguard.

This is Vincent – the world's first baby born from a transplanted womb. It happened in Sweden a year ago. His mother, who preferred not to be identified, said she wanted her success to inspire other women. Now a team at London's Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea Hospital hopes to repeat that success here. Around one in 5,000 women is born without a uterus and already more than a 100 potential transplant recipients have been identified by the UK team.
