3D printer to help build girl's nose

A 3D printer is to be used in ground-breaking surgery on a two-year-old girl.

Tessa Evans was born with an extremely rare medical condition that means she has no nose or sense of smell.

The surgery will involve a mould being inserted into Tessa's face to stretch her skin, and slowly build the cosmetic implant.

Chris Buckler reports.
