Cured - The boy who couldn't eat chocolate

A Shropshire eight-year-old who has never been able to eat chocolate because of a rare medical condition is having a special party this weekend where he can gorge out for the first time in his life.

A Shropshire eight-year-old who has never been able to eat chocolate because of a rare medical condition is having a special party this weekend where he can gorge out for the first time in his life.

Liam Addinell, of Racecourse Avenue, Shrewsbury, was born with two bowels instead of one and at seven months old also had to undergo open heart surgery because of a heart defect.

The St Giles's Primary School pupil has been in and out of Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool since he was born and as a result of his bowel condition he has never been able to eat chocolate.

But after coming out of hospital following his 11th operation, doctors have given the youngster the thumbs-up to tuck-in to chocolate bars and cakes to make up for lost time.

Well this is great news!

I do note that he was treated at Alder Hey in Liverpool and not the RSH children's ward....
