A car crash victim's hand has been saved by using a wartime technique which involved stitching it to his chest.
Martin Shaw's hand was severely injured when his car skidded and crashed on the A512 near Shepshed, Leicestershire.
The 35-year-old, who lives in Loughborough, thought his hand would need to be amputated and feels lucky he can still use it.
