Brody Land, 3, suffers from a rare form of dwarfism which means he still wears baby clothes and is just 74cm tall.

His parents Emma and Chris Land, of Horbury Bridge, are desperate for answers after medics at Pinderfields Hospital said they could do no more to diagnose Brody’s condition.

They have organised at fundraising gig as they attempt to raise £10,000 to take him to a specialist clinic in the US when he reaches the age of 7.
