Rumble / Babies & KidsA five-year-old boy can finally give his little brother a hug after being the first child in the UK to have a functioning prosthetic arm fixed ABOVE the elbow.

Awesome Jacob Scrimshaw is now sporting a powered green Hulk robotic arm which means he can snuggle up with his sibling, Sebastian, three.

The brave youngster was born prematurely and a scan at 20 weeks had revealed part of his left arm was missing.

Mum-of-three Gemma Turner vowed to get him a prosthetic arm after he recently came home from school crying, saying he was fed up having to struggle with just one.

Amazingly, he got his new green superhero arm on Thursday (12 Dec) and has been wearing it ever since.
