A teenager is trialling a bionic limb she hopes will help her do housework – and learn to play the drums.

Lorna Kemp, 17, from Westray in Orkney, had the state-of-the- art device fitted last week in Glasgow, making her one of only 10 people in Scotland to have one.

If the trial proves successful she hopes to raise the £30,000 needed to buy it.

Lorna, who was born without her lower right arm, said: “It’s the little girly things like doing my hair and painting my nails – I need mum to help me with those things.

“I’ve always wanted to play the drums, even though mum will probably hate the racket they make. I’d like to try the piano and the guitar as well.

“It’s the wee things, like cooking and cleaning that this new hand will help with. I could maybe get my own place to live, too.”

Brian Maguire, director of HCi Viocare who supplied the limb said: “We’re in no rush to take the hand back from Lorna.

“I’ll make sure she’s got plenty of time trialling it before she buys it.”
