A brave toddler from north Norfolk, who has battled with a rare brain injury since birth, marked a special milestone today (Tuesday) when she took part in her nursery school’s sports day.

Three-year-old Angelina Mills, from Gresham, spent the morning running with her friends and competing in an egg and spoon race at the Strawberry Patch Nursery in nearby Hempstead.

Her mum, Lisa Massingham, who also has two sons Luca, 11, and Stefan, nine, said it was a day her and partner Stephen thought would never come.

“We are so happy to see Angelina taking part in the races and playing with other children,” she said.
