Crowdfunded amputee 'never been happier'

A man who says he was in "constant pain" had his leg amputated after raising £15,000 online to pay for the operation that wasn't available on the NHS.

Rob Franks, from Poole in Dorset, says he has never been happier since the operation last month.

A bone tumour was initially discovered in his leg in 2011, in 2013 it returned and a year later he broke his leg and required strong pain-killing medication.

He is now having a prosthetic fitted and applying to the ParalympicsGB Talent ID scheme.
