Rape survivor and campaigner Fiona Doyle has just returned from Turkey where she had surgery for a partial stomach bypass after developing pre-cancerous cells.

She spoke to the Sunday Independent from her Dublin home this weekend, having returned to Ireland on Thursday night. She is now in self-isolation due to Covid-19 for the next fortnight alongside her husband Jim, who travelled to Turkey with her for the major surgery.

"I'm feeling good. Quite weak but I am doing well overall. It is good to be home," she said.
