Finley Ingles 'has new life' after tumour surgery in America

The mother of a boy with a rare brain tumour said he has a new life and the chance of a happy childhood following surgery partially funded by the public.

Doctors said 90% of Finley Ingles' tumour was destroyed by laser treatment in an American hospital.

The five-year-old was discharged just 24 hours after undergoing the operation and will continue to be monitored by doctors at home in Middlesbrough, Teesside.

About 1,500 people donated towards a £200,000 total to help the family get to Texas Children's Hospital.
