Moment terminally ill grandfather meets his grandchild for the first time

Heartwarming footage captures the moment an NHS nurse - who used IVF treatment to become a single mother - introduces her baby to her terminally ill father.

Kiera, 27, can be seen bringing her child, Noah, to meet Brian, who was diagnosed with stage four melanoma.

Brian passed away just 15 weeks after Noah was born.
