YOUNG Noah Wall, the little Abbeytown boy who surprised doctors all over the world as he grew back a large proportion of his brain, has gained a new fan... in Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

In a visit organised by Workington MP Mark Jenkinson, Mr Johnson caught the eye of Noah’s mum Shelley and came over to ask about the youngster’s story.

Mr Jenkinson said: “It’s these things that make it all worthwhile. It’s little things, particularly unplanned, like seeing the smile on Noah’s face that make my job worthwhile.”
