A baby has been born from an embryo frozen 20 years ago scientists have announced.
The baby boy was born to a 42-year-old mother after having been donated by a couple 20 years ago, its the longest time an embryo has been frozen before being used successfully.
Preserving embryos by freezing has become commonplace in fertility treatment to allow women to attempt multiple cycles without repeatedly creating new embryos.
