Shooting victim Thusha regains feeling in both legs

Thusha Kamaleswaran was Britain's youngest gun crime victim when she was shot and left paralysed shot by a stray bullet in Stockwell, south London two years ago.

Since then, despite doctors' fears the eight-year-old would never be able to move her lower body again, she has regained feelings in both legs.

ITV News correspondent Paul Davies has been following the progress of Thusha’s journey to get back on her feet for the Tonight programme.
