Bristol Children Hospital patient Lydia Cross on award

A little girl, who was cared for at the Bristol Children's Hospital after losing her legs to meningitis, has been nominated for a Young Citizen Award for going out of her way to help others.

Nine-year-old Lydia Cross was just two when she caught the disease.

She's now doing all she can to help those who've lost limbs serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

She has already raised nearly £14,000 for the Help for Heroes charity.
