Physiotherapist Beth Warren (28) from Birmingham, challenged a storage time limit imposed by the UK fertility regulator.

She said the limit meant she had little over a year to conceive using sperm her husband Warren Brewer, who had cancer and died aged 32 two years ago, placed in storage.

Mrs Warren asked a High Court judge to decide whether the sperm could stay in storage for a longer period.

The judge, who heard evidence at a Family Division of the High Court in London in January, ruled in Mrs Warren's favour yesterday.
