Star Wars' John Boyega grants boy's hospital wish

A five-year-old boy living with a brain tumour has been granted his wish to hand out presents to other young patients alongside his favourite Star Wars character.

Daniel Bell, from Ormskirk, Lancashire, met John Boyega, who plays Finn in The Force Awakens, at the Royal London Hospital.

The actor stayed in character and delivered toys to other children.

Daniel's mother described the meeting as "priceless" and Mr Boyega said he "jumped at the chance" to grant Daniel's wish.
