A 14-year-old girl who wanted her body to be preserved so she could be brought back to life, won an historic legal fight shortly before her death.

The girl, who was terminally ill with a rare cancer, was supported in her wish to be cryogenically preserved by her mother - but not by her father.

A High Court judge ruled that the girl's mother should be allowed to decide what happened to the body.

The girl, who died in October, has now been taken to the US and frozen.

The details of her case have just been released.

The teenager - who cannot be named - and who lived in the London area, used the internet to investigate cryonics during the last months of her life.
