Former Labour advisor Alastair Campbell serenaded a hero nurse home on the bagpipes after she finished a gruelling shift on a busy hospital ward.

Matilda ‘Sissy’ Bridge battled leukaemia from the age of two-and-a-half and joined the NHS to work with those who helped her beat the cancer and care for others.
