Doc Martin has come to the rescue of the Cornish baby who plays his on screen son.

Little Alfie Cane from Truro has a rare condition which means he has a misshapen skull and can not support his own head.

Now actor Martin Clunes has donated a load of memorabilia from the show to help the six month old get the treatment he needs.

His parents faced a bill of around £2,000 to pay for a specially made helmet to strengthen his muscles and reshape his skull.

Mum Tilly is thanking everyone who has helped the family raise money. She said, "The other children were at risk of losing their presents. They all wanted bikes and stuff like that. They were all up for the fact that Christmas wasn't going to be like any other Christmas. It would be different because Alfie needed what he needed."
