Doctors have carried out the world’s first successful womb transplant in a breakthrough that could allow thousands of young women to fulfil their dream of motherhood.

Derya Sert, who was born without a womb, received a healthy organ in a seven-hour operation.

Scans show her new womb, which came from a woman who had died in a car crash, to be healthy and working well.

Mrs Sert is due to start IVF treatment in Turkey in September in the hope of conceiving a longed-for child.
