Angelina Mills from Gresham, Norfolk, had the right half of her brain ravaged by a rare condition but thanks to miracle surgery she's left with a great chance of a normal life.

Surgeons 'switched off' the side, which was so badly damaged by a birthmark it could have killed her.

And they say that she'll be as good as new as the left half of her brain takes over tasks the disconnected side would normally carry out.

"We've been told there's a good chance of normal development because she is so young," News of the World quoted mum Lisa as saying.

Lisa discovered her daughter had Sturge Weber Syndrome after finding the symptoms on the web.
