A 73‑year‑old woman in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh has given birth to twin girls.

Doctors delivered the twins, who were born following IVF treatment.

Dr Uma Sankar says the mother and the babies are doing well.

Mangayamma Yaramati said she and her husband, who is 82 years old, have always wanted children but had been unable to conceive until now.

Having children was important to the couple, who also said that they felt stigmatised in their village.
