Cornwall amputee boy Marshall Janson in skateboarding plea

A boy who had to have his limbs amputated when he had meningitis as a one-year-old is appealing for help in doing his new hobby, skateboarding.

Nine-year-old Marshall Janson, from Cornwall, finds it difficult to propel himself on his skateboard as his arms and legs are protected by sensitive skin grafts.

His family is asking people to get in touch with their suggestions via The Handstand Appeal, set up to support Marshall as he gets older.
