Dozens joined the recipient of the first successful baby heart transplant to celebrate the 25th anniversary of her operation today.
Kaylee Davidson-Olley, who underwent the historic procedure 25 years ago, was joined by more than 30 people who have since had the operation as babies.
On October 14 1987 Ms Davidson-Olley (pictured) made medical history at just five months old when she successfully received a heart transplant at Freeman Hospital in Newcastle. Since then 112 children under the age of one from across the country have received new hearts.
Ms Davidson-Olley, 25, said: "I cannot believe that I am fit and healthy 25 years after my heart transplant.
"This was only made possible because of the generosity of a family who made that important decision about organ donation, a decision that saved my life."
