This is the heart-warming moment a disabled girl who was told she might never walk took her first steps after undergoing a life-changing operation.

Mum Clare Gibbs, 41, watched with pride as three-year-old Georgie - who has cerebral palsy - walked along parallel bars towards her favourite toy. She captured the tots first steps on camera at Bristol Children’s Hospital last Thursday (25/3) just four days after she had pioneering surgery on her spine. Georgie was born 12 weeks prematurely and was diagnosed with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy when she was 14 months old. Despite Clare, of St John’s, Worcester, voicing concerns about her not being able to sit up at the age of nine months, doctors put it down to her being born premature.
