An eight-year-old from Cwmbran raising cash for an operation to help him walk has seen the fund swell to £40,000 in a matter of months.

Ethan Jolosa has a condition called Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy, which means he needs a walking frame to get about.

But he now hopes to be able to have surgery in Bristol that should mean he can walk unaided.

Paul Heaney reports.
