Mother of young organ donor backs register

The mother of a young boy whose organs saved the life of five people has backed an appeal for more members of the public to sign up to the organ donation register.

Erin Lappin said she takes comfort from knowing her three-year-old son Stewart's donations gave a new lease of life to an adult and four children. They included two babies born after his death.

More than 600 people in Scotland are waiting for a transplant.
