Girl, 8, walks into school on new prosthetic leg

Amelia Eldred was given a group hug by her friends as she walked into class on her prosthetic leg for the first time.

The eight-year-old from Tamworth, Staffordshire, had her left leg amputated last year after being diagnosed with bone cancer.

She had a rare procedure called rotationplasty to reattach the lower part of her leg backwards so she could have a prosthetic fitted.

Amelia described the reaction of her classmates as “amazing”.
