The trainee doctors changing amputees' lives

Two trainee doctors from Newcastle are using their skills to help amputees in Bangladesh.

Matt Walton and Zaamin Hussain set up a clinic on behalf of charity Naya Qadam Trust to fit people with artificial limbs - made out of melted drain pipes and rubber tyres.

So far the young doctors have raised more than £7,000 and have helped more than 70 people.
