Harry Turner from South Cumbria is celebrating 50 years since his life-saving kidney operation.

Most kidney transplants last 10-15 years which makes his the oldest in the UK. ITV Border's Fiona Marley Paterson went to meet him.

The latest figures show there are around 5,000 people waiting for a kidney donation in the UK, and more than 450 of those are in the North West. Last year in our region around 120 transplants were carried out from living donors.
