FA Cup: Bradford City fan Mary Thornton gets visit from trophy

BBC Look North was there to capture the moment Bradford City fan Mary Thornton got a special visit from the FA Cup trophy.

The 85-year-old season ticket holder was picked out by television cameras celebrating her team's 4-2 win at Chelsea in the fourth round and the Football Association rewarded her dedication by taking the Cup to her home.

She thinks the Bantams, who face Sunderland on Sunday in the last 16, have what it takes to go all the way this year and win the competition for the first time since 1911.
