Teenager Kieran Maxwell lost part if his leg to Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer, in October 2010.

The 13-year-old will be fitted with a new prosthetic limb after lottery winners Colin and Chris Weir, from Ayrshire, Scotland, heard his story and decided to pay for it.

Kieran carried the Olympic torch through Bishop Auckland in June.

He said: "It's brilliant, I can do anything".
