Video: Rare hip condition means boy can’t play tag

Have your say

The mum of a Hayle schoolboy with a rare hip condition says he just wants to play with his friends.

Seven year old Harry has been diagnosed with Perthes. It can last four years and means he can’t run, play football or go on softplay. Mum Catherine Johns said: “In the mornings at school he’ll go and line up on his own. The other day I saw a child come up to him, tag him and say, ‘Tag - you’re it.’ “Harry said: ‘I can’t. I’m not allowed to run.’
