New legs appeal for north London meningitis boy


A four-year-old whose life was transformed by state of the art running blade legs, is now in need of replacements.

Harvey Parry, from Edmonton, developed meningitis and had his legs amputated.

His parents gave up their jobs to raise the money for his first set of blades, but now he's outgrown them.

BBC London's Sarah Harris met the Parry family to find out more.
