Glentoran skipper Marcus Kane has praised the staff at the Royal Maternity Hospital after raising more than £22,000 for the centre following the passing of his infant son in December.

Marcus' wife Aimee underwent a check-up at 32 weeks of pregnancy on her birthday but they received the awful news that their son no longer had a heartbeat, just a week before Christmas.

Harrie Kane was born on December 18, and his mum, dad and big sister Mollie were able to spend some precious time together at the Bereavement Care Centre at the Royal Maternity Hospital in Belfast.
