A woman from Telford who had to have her hand amputated after years of pain following a simple accident is trying to raise money for a bionic arm.

Samantha Gibson injured her right hand clearing up after her cat in 2010 - and was diagnosed with mallet finger and regional pain syndrome which led to her having it amputated in 2014.

The bionic limb costs £30,000 - and Samantha believes - would completely change her quality of life.
