A Scottish nurse who recovered from Ebola, but then suffered life-threatening complications from the virus persisting in her brain, has been re-admitted to hospital for a third time.

Pauline Cafferkey contracted Ebola in December 2014.

She was working in a treatment facility in Sierra Leone at the height of an epidemic of the disease which swept through three countries in West Africa.

She was discharged from hospital late last year after suffering further complications from the virus.
