Study aims to help amputees re-grow lost limbs

Amputees could one day re-grow their missing limbs, according to researchers at Imperial College London.

The 25-year, £60m programme, aims to explore the possibility of regenerating human tissue and eventually remove the need for prosthetic arms and legs.

Former England footballer Sir Bobby Charlton is the key fundraiser behind the project, as Tim Muffett reports.
