British-born Nigerian Star Wars actor, John Boyega, 24, delivered toys to sick children at the Royal London Hospital. Among the children he visited was Daniel Bell, from Ormskirk. 5-year-old Daniel who has been living with a brain tumour said he wished he could hand out presents to children alongside his favourite film character.

The Star Wars actor said he was glad at the chance to grant the request. He also taught Daniel how to use a lightsaber as part of the special treat, organised by Rays of Sunshine Childrenâ€™s Charity.
The Bafta-winning actor described Daniel as â€œan amazing and inspirational boyâ€.
â€œWhen I heard about Danielâ€™s wish to meet Finn, I jumped at the chance to make it come true. It was fantastic to be a part of his very special wish with Rays of Sunshine.â€
It was also great to meet the children at The Royal London Hospital and be a part of something so positive.â€ he added.
Danielâ€™s mum Rosalind said the meeting was something money could not buy.
â€œTo see Daniel smile like that without a care in the world after everything heâ€™s been through, knowing how much time and effort Rays of Sunshine have put in to his wish and that John Boyega gave his time to make it come true, is priceless. These things canâ€™t be bought and really do mean the worldâ€
