A soldier from South Shields has become the first person in the UK to receive a 'thought-controlled' prosthetic arm.
Corporal Andrew Garthwaite lost his arm when he was hit by a rocket propelled grenade while serving in Afghanistan.
Now he is able to control the movement in his bionic arm by focusing his mind on nerves connected to muscles in his chest. Richard Wilson reports.
