‘Spray On Skin’ Leaves Burned Boy Scar-Free

A two-year-old boy has recovered from severe burns thanks to pioneering surgery.

Zed Merrick, from Ulceby in Lincolnshire, suffered second degree burns on his chest and stomach four months ago after knocking over a cup of tea. Surgeons at Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield treated the burns by spraying his own healthy skin cells onto the affected area.
