Helped by Help for Heroes

Neil Heritage is celebrating turning 30. It is a birthday he nearly did not see.

In November 2004, both his legs were blown off by a suicide bomber in Iraq while he was serving with an Army bomb disposal team.

Mr Heritage turned to the charity Help for Heroes and its safety net of welfare officers and medical care after he left he Army. He explains how the ordeal affected his life.
