A girl who had a leg amputated after being diagnosed with cancer has been fitted for her first running blade.

Amelia Eldred, 11, from Tamworth, Staffordshire, will still use her “everyday” prosthetic leg, but was “so excited” about the new one, her mother Michelle said.

She has been playing sport but could not run, whereas there was “bounce” with the blade, Mrs Eldred said.

Amelia is expected to take it home on 19 January after a final fitting.

Mrs Eldred said her daughter had described it as a “dream come true” and the “best present ever”.
