An 11-year-old girl who is fed through a tube because she can't keep food or drink down has passed a singing exam - with flying colours - against the odds.

Chloe Dring, 11, began to find it hard to keep food and drink down - thought to be due to a stomach reflex - in around October last year.

The Sir John Sherbrooke Junior School, Calverton, pupil was admitted to the Queen's Medical Centre around October 19 and medics discovered she had ulcers in her oesophegus.

She spent around 12 days there where she was on medication used in the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease, and an 'NG tube' [nasogastric tube] was temporarily fitted so she could be fed with a liquid diet and hydrated.

Chloe, who is in Year Six and a talented singer, came out of hospital after the ulcers had been removed, and the tube detached, and she started to feel better.
