A man has been using an artificial robotic arm for everyday tasks under a trial being run by a Coventry college.

Jonathan McGeown, who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, is involved in a project by students at Hereward College. The arm, which is fixed to a wheelchair, comes from Canada and costs about £28,000.
