A Gangnam Style video made by members of Devon and Cornwall Police in Falmouth has now been viewed 133,000 times and raised more than £8,000 towards transforming the life of a severely disabled young boy. 
Sergeant Gary Watts persuaded colleagues and members of the public to join him in re-creating the popular music video by South Korean singer Psy in order to raise money for Joshua Wilson, 12, from Lancashire, who has been left with complex physical needs following surgery on a brain tumour. 
The money raised from the video will go towards making adaptations to Joshua's home to meet his needs. The family needs £25,000 to complete the work. 

The video was released on YouTube on Monday afternoon and in just a few days viewers have donated £8,600. Joshua's mother has spoken about the difference the money will help make to Joshua's life and described the response to the video as "totally incredible".
