New limb for girl who 'danced her foot off'


Amelia Eldred has always loved to dance and losing a limb to bone cancer was not going to stop her.

The nine-year-old from Tamworth, in Staffordshire, underwent a rare procedure last year called rotationplasty.

The lower part of the leg was reattached backwards so the ankle joint could work as a knee joint.

She continued to dance with her new prosthetic limb but now the active girl has worn it out, and she needs a new one.
