The first person to have a hand transplant in the UK says he can now perform basic tasks with his new hand.

Mark Cahill from Greetland near Halifax, West Yorkshire, had the operation at Leeds General Infirmary in December.

The former pub landlord had been unable to use his right hand after it was affected by gout.

Mr Cahill said: "It's a little bit clumsy but it's starting to work."
