3D technology enables kidney transplant

In a world first, 3D printing technology has enabled a County Antrim toddler to get a life-saving kidney transplant.

The organ was donated by Lucy Boucher's father.

The printing technology allowed surgeons to build a paper model and then work out exactly how they could fit his adult kidney into her little body.

BBC News NI's health correspondent Marie-Louise Connolly met the family.
