Cheers as limbless girl Harmonie-Rose completes race

A girl who lost all her limbs after contracting meningitis was cheered across the finish line at a half-marathon.

Harmonie-Rose Allen, five, walked the final few metres of the course in Bath on Sunday after being pushed for the rest by a team of family and teachers.

As a baby in 2014 Harmonie-Rose contracted meningococcal septicaemia and was given a 10% chance of survival.
