Tilly Lockey: ‘I can paint with my bionic arms’

Tilly Lockey, 13, has bionic arms that are so sophisticated she can now paint and apply make-up.

She lost both of her hands after contracting meningitis as a baby and is now at the forefront of testing the technology.

Her latest set, complete with pressure sensors and fine motor control, are not yet available on the NHS – but it is hoped they will be soon.
