A BRAVE youngster is recovering after his third bout of open-heart surgery.

Three-year-old Jack Davidson, from Billingham, was born with a condition which meant the left side of his heart had not developed.

It was the third operation he had been given since he was born, but he will need a heart transplant before he is 30.

Jack’s parents Tracey, 32, and Ian, 39, said doctors at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle are pleased with his progress.
