A Yorkshire mother has revealed that without a brave organ donor, she would be all but blind.

The 39-year-old had her third corneal transplant in Leeds in June. She has an eye disease that has affected her sight since the age of 10 but had to wait 12 months for her latest op amid a lack of corneal donors. She is now hoping to learn to drive.

With more self-less donors coming forward, in future people may receive help even more quickly.
