Farmer provides tractor-mad youngster with treat

AN ATHERTON farmer laid on a treat for a brave, tractor-mad youngster.
Six years ago doctors discovered Jacob Tudor had an inoperable tumour squashing his brain. He lost the use of his legs, underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and doctors said there was no more they could do.
Now the 10-year-old can walk a few steps and his tumour is dormant. When Paddy Mulcahy, from Tyldesley, discovered Jacob loves John Deere tractors he arranged for him to visit Mark Lancaster at Lodge Farm, Hindsford.
Jacob, from Westhoughton, received a souvenir when Mark presented him with a tractor driver’s cap.
Farmer Mark said: “I have a little passenger seat and Jacob sat alongside me. He was so excited and a bit nervous but I drove him up and down the lane. He is an amazing little lad.”
