This is the adorable moment a girl was showered with affection when she showed her friends her new prosthetic leg.

Seven-year-old Anu, from Birmingham, had her leg amputated not long after she was born and has now been fitted with a fabulous pink prosthetic blade.

And as she walked into her school playground for the first time wearing it, her excited friends hugged her and walked hand in hand with her through the playground.

As a crowd of children gathered round Anu, one child is heard saying “wow!” before she is hugged.

The footage, aired on BBC Midlands Today, also shows Anu running and skipping with her friends.

Anu’s activity blade has been custom made to allow her to run and dance around like any other child.

It was built after the NHS was handed £1.5m for new research and to ensure that children have access to activity prosthetics that allow them to run and swim.

Some £500,000 was ring fenced to fund new sports prosthetics for 500 children, according to the Telegraph.

The Government funding is due to run out in March next year.
