A little boy from Liverpool is about to undergo a life changing operation to help him walk.

5 year old Jack Hickey and his twin Luke both have cerebral palsy.

Their parents fundraised tens of thousands of pounds to pay for surgery unavailable on the NHS. Luke has already had the surgery and is doing well.

Now Jack will also have the same treatment, after he passed strict NHS criteria to have the operation.

His family will be donating the crowdfunded donations to charity.
