Marla, who was born without a left hand, receives a 3D printed prosthesis

A new prosthetic hand given to a three-year-old girl in Newbury has been "life-changing" according to her mother.

Marla Trigwell was born without a left hand.

Her mother Joanne managed to get a new one designed by a group called Enable - but took to social media for help to get it printed and built.

A local non-profit group dedicated to promoting scientific and engineering skills, called Newbury and District Hackspace, took it on as a project.

Now Marla is wearing it every day.
