Poorly baby Nina arrives in the UK

Sick baby Nina Warnell has safely made it to Great Ormond Street Hospital after being dramatically rushed to the UK by medical jet.

The 13-week-old who was born with no immune system and is awaiting a bone marrow donor arrived from Poland on Thursday afternoon and is in a stable condition in a specialist unit.

There have been a number of donors shortlisted but there is still two to three weeks of tissue testing required to see if any of them are suitable for Nina.

"It is too early to know if any of the donors will be able to help Nina but as always we have our fingers crossed and a huge thanks to all those people who came forward to register as donors," said dad Graeme Warnell, 42, who grew up in Braywick Road, Maidenhead.

The family is still urgently appealing for donors, especially men aged between 18-30, to register with the Anthony Nolan Trust.
