HFEA extends couples licence for storing embryos

The Times has reported that a couple looking for a surrogate mother for their frozen embryos has been given an extension to their licence for storing the eggs so they can find a clinic abroad who will store them. Normally, eggs frozen for surrogacy can only be stored for five years but the HFEA has used a discretionary power to extend the couple's licence as they continue their search for a suitable surrogate.
