The family of a boy struck down with a rare form of epilepsy say they're desperate to bring him home from hospital.

Lewis Pierce has been in Manchester Children's Hospital since October and was previously placed into an induced coma due to the number of seizures he was having.

His parents Michelle and Matt say they need to specially adapt their property before their son is allowed home but government money awarded to them isn't enough to make the changes needed.
