Video: Brave five-year-old with debilitating condition hugs Prince Harry


A young boy whose debilitating medical condition means he is barely able to walk has used his strength to stand up and give Prince Harry a hug.

Ollie Carroll, five, suffers from the rare Batten disease, which affects his mobility and will soon lead to the point where his muscles stop working.

But when the youngster, from Poynton, Cheshire, met Harry at the WellChild awards - where he was receiving the Inspirational Child award for ages four to six - he stood up to embrace Harry.
