A woman with Crohn's disease - who lost a legal bid to get NHS funding for her eggs to be frozen before she has chemotherapy - will now have private treatment paid for her.

A clinic in London has stepped forward to support Elizabeth Rose from Margate, who says a bone marrow transplant may make her infertile.

The Thanet Clinical Commissioning Group, which refused to fund the procedure on the health service, will cover her expenses.
