Military amputees to get 'bionic legs'

19th February 2013

The government has confirmed it has earmarked £6.5 million to fund the latest prosthetic limbs for injured members of the military.

Chancellor George Osborne, said: "Our troops are heroes who have and continue to give absolutely everything for their country and it is only right that we do everything possible to help them, especially when they suffer injury. I am delighted, therefore, that we have been able to make funding available for this cutting-edge prosthetic technology, which will go a long way to improving the lives of people who have done so much for the UK."
