A woman bakes dolls for bereaved parents.

Teresa Russon, 51, began creating the "reborn dolls" over a decade ago to cope with her own grief after losing a child and has since made more than 250 dolls in her oven for other struggling mums and dads.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "After my son died I couldn't sleep, I couldn't eat, all I did was paint and it made me feel happier.

"When I finished one doll it brought a bit of happiness back to me and I guess I latched onto that joy so carried on making more.

"The reborn dolls I make look exactly like real babies, you can't help but want to pick them up and treat them like a living child."
