Warrington girl with rare condition granted train drive wish

A five-year-old girl with a genetic condition that affects her heart, immune system and sight has been granted her wish to drive a train.

Sienna King, from Warrington in Cheshire, suffers from a condition that is so rare doctors at Alder Hey Children's Hospital call it Sienna Syndrome.

Conductor Mark Kennedy organised a trip after drawing a smiley face on her ticket and later discovering her love of the railways.

The Sienna Express left Warrington Central station for York with the youngster's mother Selina King on board, reports Alex Worsick for North West Tonight.
