A ten-year-old girl who lost both legs to meningitis is one of the first children in the UK to get "blade runner" artificial legs.

Olivia Story from Carlisle is now able to keep up with her school friends thanks to the specially made prosthetic limbs. They are made of titanium and have been made by a company that normally only makes blades for adults.
