The family of a baby who was diagnosed with leukaemia said he has received a successful transplant.

Harri Stickler was given the life-changing diagnosis at six months old.

His mother Bethan Morgan, from Aberdare, took Harri to the GP with some swelling under his eye. He was diagnosed with cancer just days later.

At the end of last year, the family began appealing for people to join the bone marrow register.

Harri underwent a course of chemotherapy and then was able to receive a transplant.

A post on the Save Harri Stickler Facebook Page from the 16th May said the transplant has '100% worked'.

Today we had the best news since Harri started his journey.

Harri’s test has come back to say the transplant has 100% worked!

He still got a bit of a way to go as it’s still early days but he’ll get there. We would like to thank you all so much for all the kind messages and support on Harri’s post since the start and a big thank you to all who joined the bone marrow register.
