An Indian woman has given birth to conjoined twin girls fused at the abdomen who doctors fear are in ‘serious’ danger of dying.

Sumitra Dutta, from a small village in Odisha, in the east of the country, was told by doctors only two days before the delivery that she was carrying twins.

However, during a two-hour long surgery to deliver the twins, they were shocked to discover they shared a heart and liver, local reports claim.

The girls, born weighing 9lbs 7oz (4.3kg), were quickly transferred to a specialist hospital where doctors declared them in a critical state.
