A man from Devon whose arm was severed in a car crash can move it for the first time in a decade.

Surgeons reattached former serviceman Craig Stewart's limb after his accident ten years ago, but it was left paralysed - until now. Over the last three years doctors in Swansea have worked to restore movement.

Pioneering surgery at the Welsh Centre for Burns and Plastic Surgery transferring a muscle from his thigh into his arm means he can now raise and bend that arm and move its fingers for the first time in years. You can find out more about the surgery here.
