The London Fire Brigade has backed an appeal to help find a stem cell donor for the four year old son of one of their firefighters.

Tommy Simpson, whose father works in Stratford, has been in Great Ormond Street Hospital since Christmas.

He has acute Myeloid Leukaemia but due to a lack of black Caribbean donors, his parents say its much harder to find a match.
