      A nine-year-old model who had both legs amputated as a baby has walked the runway at New York Fashion Week.

      Daisy-May Demetre, from Birmingham, is believed to be the first double amputee child to walk in an official New York Fashion Week show.

      Her father Alex said she was “amazing” and “felt really proud of herself” as she modelled for brand Lulu et Gigi.

      She is set to model at the top of the Eiffel Tower at Paris Fashion Week later this month.
