Taylor Jones, aged 13 from Ruchill in Glasgow is a sports mad teenager who plays golf, football, swims and is a keen scooter stunt rider. Taylor believes having one leg is no bar to anything.

Taylor, who had his right leg amputated when he was just six weeks old because of a blood clot, has had a tumultuous upbringing but is now happy with adoptive parents who say he is simply unstoppable.

Taylor, who refuses to use the lift at school, was pictured on his crutches running last year’s Santa Dash for charity and is determined one day to be a Paralympian.
