A Dorchester man whose life was saved by a liver transplant has welcomed proposals that would see registered organ donors get preferential treatment...

If it gets more people signing up as registered organ donors.

Plans to bump organ donors to the top of the waiting list when they need a transplant are being considered by the NHS.

It's after 1,300 people died last year on that list.  

But why does Dorchester's Jon Fox think it's a good way to get people to sign up?
