Polio boy has

delayed surgery

Three-year-old polio victim Daniel Hadlow, from the Isle of Wight, was last night in a stable condition in hospital after undergoing an operation to straighten his spine that had twice been cancelled minutes before he was due to have surgery.

Nursing staff in the intensive care unit at Southampton General Hospital volunteered to work extra shifts so the operation could finally go ahead.
