A bionic man, complete with working artificial organs, synthetic blood and functioning limbs has been built by robotics experts.

Costing more than £500,000 to build, the human-like machine is on display at the Science Museum in London.

Robotics expert Richard Walker, and Prof Alexander Seifalian of University College London, explained to the BBC's John Maguire how aspects of technology for helping disabled people, were brought together for the project.
