An international team of doctors has worked together to carry out surgery on a woman in a London hospital.

But only one of the doctors was in the room at the time, with the others in India, the US and at another London hospital.

Using virtual reality technology, doctors around the world were able to participate in the consultation.

There are hopes the new resource will allow better access to training for doctors and medical students in every corner of the globe.
