The widow of a Falklands war veteran has won a High Court bid to keep frozen embryos that they created.

Samantha Jefferies, 42, from East Sussex, said they were her “last chance” of having his child.

Clive Jefferies died suddenly, aged 51, in 2014 and Mrs Jefferies was told the embryos they had created with a view to having fertility treatment could not be stored for longer than two years – despite the couple having given their written consent for them to be kept for a decade.

Speaking after the decision, she said she was confident her husband would want her to have the embryos and to use them to be a mum.
