Conjoined twins make good recovery

Surgeons who successfully separated conjoined twins a month ago say the two baby girls are recovering well.

Rital and Ritage Gaboura - who are just 11 months old -- were born joined at the head. The sisters, who are from Sudan, had four operations at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.

Simon Eccles was one of the surgeon's involved in the fourth and final operations to separate the twins. He spoke to Mishal Husain about the operation.
