Cieran Kelso: Boy who lost legs uses 'dolphin inspired' flippers

Cieran Kelso, seven, who lost his legs after suffering meningitis as a baby has been given a new lease of life thanks to prosthetic flippers.

Cieran, from Northwich, Cheshire is now able to swim thanks to flippers which fit onto the end of his prosthetic legs.

His family were inspired by seeing similar flippers on an injured dolphin and raised £8,000 to get a customised set for Cieran, whose next ambition is to swim with dolphins.
