Donations inspired by a terminally ill boy, whose good-luck message to F1 driver Lewis Hamilton prompted him to send a racing car to the youngster's home, have reached more than £200,000.

Harry Shaw, who has a rare bone cancer, posted a video that inspired Hamilton's victory in the Spanish Grand Prix.

The motor racing star sent a car to the five-year-old's home in Redhill in Surrey, who he described as his "spirit angel" as he dedicated his victory to him.

In April, Harry's parents were told he had just one week left to live.

On the online donations page, his mum and dad, Charlotte and James, wrote: "We would love Harry's story to inspire fundraising for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity because only research can stop this awful disease."

'I don't ever cry... but I think you're amazing'

Deborah James becomes emotion whilst interviewing the "amazing" Tierney Kinsella.
Tierney Kinsella, 18, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, an aggressive and rare form of bone cancer, in 2015.

She joins Deborah James, Lauren Mahon and Steve Bland to talk about her experiences since being told in September 2018 that her cancer was inoperable:

"I do try to go out with my friends... But then sometimes when I come home and feel worse."

"I usually talk to my mum more, because I feel like she's always with me, so understands what I go through every day," said the 18-year-old.

"I'm so sorry, I feel really embarrassed to cry in front of you, but I think you're amazing" said Deborah, who has stage 4 bowel cancer.
