First British amputee models at London Fashion Week

Paralympic athlete Stefanie Reid has become the first British amputee to model at London Fashion Week.

She opened Lenie Boya's show wearing a bespoke blade prosthesis featuring a chandelier.

Ms Reid told Breakfast's Steph McGovern it was great to get some diversity on the runway.

She added: "Normally when I'm out, parents will tell their children not to stare but here is a leg that was meant to be stared, it's meant to be embraced."
