A six-year-old girl with cerebral palsy wants others to have an operation on the NHS which her family have said has helped her walk unaided.

Shannon Bowley has shown improvements following the procedure to reduce her spasticity at the Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham.

However, the surgery for other sufferers of the condition has been stopped by NHS England because of doubts over it effectiveness.
