Liverpool Echo | by Gemma Jaleel
A LIVERPOOL dad today spoke of his gratitude that his family have been reunited after his young son was given a new heart.

Eighteen-month-old Jack Morris underwent a life-saving heart transplant after spending five months on the transplant list - and after his dad made an appeal in the ECHO.

Earlier this year Jack was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy with the left ventricle of his heart not pumping effectively.

Dad Chris, who also has another son Alex, aged four, with his partner Laura Campbell, 25, had to split his time between Liverpool and Newcastle where Jack was being cared for.
