Double hand transplant patient writes letter of thanks

The first person in the UK to have a double hand transplant has written a letter of thanks to his surgeon, nine months after his pioneering operation.

Chris King, 57, of Doncaster, lost both hands, except his thumbs, in an accident at work four years ago.

He had the complex operation at Leeds General Infirmary in July.
