Man from Hull receives bionic hand on the NHS


A man from Hull has become the first in the country to be fitted with a bionic hand on the NHS.

Mike Swainger lost an arm and one leg after he was hit by a train when he was 13 years old.

Twenty years on and he says he has been given a new chance to enjoy life with his battery powered hand.

Vicky Johnson reports.
