Conjoined twins defy the odds in new home of Wales

A pair of conjoined twins from Senegal are about to start full-time nursery in their new home of Cardiff, defying the expectation that they would only live a few days.

Doctors have been surprised by Mariame and Ndeye’s progress, discovering that the closely linked circulatory systems that make it impossible to separate them is also the reason they have continued to thrive, as both girls are mutually dependent on each other.

The twins’ father, Ibrahima Ndiaye, originally brought his daughters to the UK in the hope they would get a better life.
