Mandy Allwood, who last week miscarried all eight of her babies, could leave King's College Hospital within the next few days, according to her publicist Max Clifford.

Ms Allwood, 31, from Solihull, West Midlands, has apparently had problems sleeping and has been haunted by the sound of babies in the south London hospital.

Mr Clifford stressed that she had no regrets about carrying all eight babies, in the face of widespread condemnation. "She regrets the way it's ended, but she's made it very clear that, given the same choice of aborting some of them and quite possibly losing all of them, or trying to have all of them, she would do exactly the same thing again ... Obviously, after what she's been through, it's going to take a lot of time to recover physically and mentally." Charlie Bain
