Severely-disabled boy takes first steps

A 12-year-old boy who could not walk has taken his first steps using a spider-like contraption.

Oscar Scott Towers lives with Au-Kline syndrome, which affects his brain, respiratory system and his ability to walk.

But after receiving intense therapy from charity Footsteps, based in Dorchester in Oxfordshire, he has taken his first independent steps using hoists.

His mum Hazel Scott said it had made him more confident.
