A British military healthcare worker who became infected with Ebola while working in Sierra Leone has been discharged from a London hospital after being the first patient in the world to be treated with an experimental drug.

Corporal Anna Cross chose to be given the drug MIL 77 at the Royal Free Hospital and has now been declared free of the deadly virus.

The 25-year-old, from Cambridge, joined the Army Reserves in 2013 as a staff nurse and volunteered to help care for Ebola patients in the west African country, arriving there in February, the hospital said.

She was evacuated back to the UK in an RAF plane on March 12 after becoming the third Briton to test positive for Ebola.
