Belfast firm responds to little Lauryn's plight

Five-year-old Lauryn Tracy in her new wheelchair

Oulart schoolgirl Lauryn Tracy has been given the loan of a wheelchair to replace the one taken when the family car was stolen from outside their home.

The five-year-old, who has cerebral palsy, was obliged to go to school in a baby buggy, much to her embarrassment after the theft.

But now Belfast company Fred Storey, which heard about her plight through newspaper coverage, has presented her with a fresh set of wheels. The HSE told the family that any replacement of the customised equipment provided by the public health service would take five months to organise.

'We are mobile again,' confirmed Lauren's father Gavin.
