An eight-year-old boy struck down by a life-threatening illness from E. coli poisoning has been saved thanks to a kidney transplant from his mum.

Leo McFaulds caught the bug along with his little brother in May and developed Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome (HUS) – a rare illness affecting the blood, causing anaemia and kidney failure.
