The inquest into the death of a soldier from Barrow, who was killed in Afghanistan last January, is due to finish soon. The inquest has heard how 23-year-old Kingsman David Shaw, of 1st Battalion the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment, was killed by 'sheer fluke'.
Kingsman Shaw was on duty at an Afghan Police checkpoint which came under fire when a bullet struck him in the neck. He died 2 days later in hospital.
A former soldier is to be fitted with what's being described as the world's most technologically advanced prosthetic limb.
Gregg Stevenson, from Foulridge in Lancashire, lost both legs after stepping on a mine while on patrol in Helmand Province in Afghanistan 5 years ago.
The new limb offers more physical capability than other prosthetic legs and will enable Gregg to do much more. Gregg, who's 29, and has a young son, says "I’ll be able to run around and play with him like other parents can, without having to switch between different limbs."
Gregg's been volunteering for a charity encouraging injured colleagues to take up sport and get their lives back on track. He hopes his increased mobility with the new limb will enable him to return to working as an engineer.
