BBC Radio Nottingham's Frances Finn

God made my leg grow

BBC Radio Nottingham presenter Frances Finn has witnessed a miracle. Watch the footage captured on a mobile phone.

Frances Finn broke her leg skiing when she was 13 years old. The accident has led to limbs of different lengths.

However, at a Christian Conference in April 2008 an audience of over 100 people witnessed her shorter leg grow.

"I was seeing it but it wasn't quite registering."

A miracle

One of the speakers at the Christian Conference, Mark Marx, asked for someone from the audience to put their hand up to be healed. Fran obliged.

"When I broke my leg it healed wonky and I've got one leg that is an inch and a half shorter than the other.

"It has meant that my pelvis has slumped a bit and my back is curved. I get quite bad back pain and I wear an insert in my shoe to stop me limping."

Fran put her hand up. She went to the front and everyone gathered round.

"I put my feet on his hands and he just said a simple prayer and honest to goodness my leg started to grow in front of everybody."

"It felt like there was a little pressure in my tibia.

"Then I had to get up and walk around but, honestly, I just started walking normally."

Spreading the word

Weeks on and Fran is still walking without her shoe insert. Word of her miracle healing has spread and she is now speaking to congregations across the country about her experience.

"Why this is so bizarre is that it happened in front of everybody's eyes. It's something really physical.

"What if it's true [that God has healed me]? That is what I've been coming to terms with."
