Young patients at a Nottingham hospital are taking delivery of a fleet of scooters today as part of a plan to make operations seem less scary.

In total six micro-scooters are being donated to the Children's Hospital at the Queen's Medical Centre. The idea is to allow the children to scoot to the operating theatre - making the prospect of surgery less daunting.
