Football match held to raise £21,000 for a woman with excruciating knee pain

A woman from Birmingham says she's contemplating having her leg amputated because of the excruciating pain she suffers from every single day.

The 24-year-old Paige Howitt has complex regional pain syndrome - a painful condition that leaves her with burning pain around her left knee.

She's lived with it for seven years after her nerves were damaged during a routine kneecap alignment operation.
