Prosthetics: 'Children don't walk they run everywhere'

"Children don't walk, they run everywhere," is Rebecca Roberts' view.

Her daughter Elizabeth was born with fibular hemimelia - a birth defect where some or all of the fibular bone is missing - and had her legs amputated when she was one.

Mrs Roberts petitioned the Welsh Government to set up a scheme to provide sports prosthetics for children such as Elizabeth, now five.

The £417,000 fund opens in April - a similar one began in England in 2016.
