A five-year-old boy is making an incredible recovery from illness after being struck down by a tumour.

And his family believes he has been helped by his new specially-designed wheelchair - which boast superhero Hulk wheels.

Harry Addy, from Stalham, had the tumour removed from his back at Addenbrokes Hospital in Cambridge.

However, when he was discharged he was given a wheelchair which was too heavy for his little arms and wheels too far apart, which made it difficult for him to operate.

His mum and dad, Melanie and Jim Addy, contacted Richard Magnus, a friend at North Walsham Round Table, for help to raise money for a besoke wheelchair.

And, after they approached the neighbouring Round Table in Stalham, both made a donation to give Adam a new chair designed specifically for him.

Melanie said: 'Due to the wheelchair, the physiotherapist thinks that this has accelerated Harry's recovery.'
