Doctors in Newcastle have been given the first UK licence to create babies from two women and one man, the fertility regulator says. The advanced form of IVF will be used to prevent children dying from genetic diseases.

The team at the Newcastle Fertility Centre said it was "good news" and a "momentous day" for patients. And realistically expect the first child to be born in 2018 at the earliest. The procedure aims to overcome mitochondrial diseases which leave people with insufficient energy to keep their heart beating.
