The man with a titanium chest

For seven years, part of Edward Evans's sternum was missing - the bone would normally have protected his lungs and heart.

A single blow to his chest could have killed him.

Now Edward, from the Midlands, has become the first person in the UK to get a 3D-printed titanium replacement.
