A POLITICIAN has given her views on a girl who won a legal battle who wanted her body to be preserved in case she could be cured in the future.

The girl’s divorced parents had become embroiled in a dispute relating to whether her remains should be taken to a specialist facility in the United States and cryogenically preserved.

The girl - who cannot be named for legal reasons - asked a High Court judge to rule that her mother - who supported her wish to be cryogenically preserved - should be the only person allowed to make decisions about the disposal of her body.

Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage said says she was touched by the girl’s story.

Ms Dinenage said: ‘When you read the letter the girl wrote to the judge, you can’t help but be moved by it and I admire her determination.

‘When someone loses their life so young and so tragically they deserve every chance.’
