Cerebral palsy operation 'truly life-changing'

The parents of twins with cerebral palsy are calling for the NHS to make a "truly life-changing" operation available to everyone with the condition.

Both of Emma and Phil Elbourne's twins have cerebral palsy but only one, Eva, was eligible for an operation which allowed her to walk.

They managed to raise the funds themselves for the other twin, Louie, to have the procedure but they want it to become available to all on the NHS.

They were interviewed on the Victoria Derbyshire programme, broadcast at 9.15 every weekday on BBC Two and the BBC News Channel.
