Injured steelworker Michael Downs recovers with choir

A man from Kenfig Hill who suffered catastrophic injuries in an accident at the Port Talbot steelworks 15 months ago has made a remarkable recovery.

Michael Down, known as Clive by friends, clinically died in the air ambulance and was revived but spent three months in a coma.

Doctors told his wife Carol that he would probably never walk, see or hear again.

But last night at a concert in North Cornelly, he took to the stage for the first time since his accident.

David Grundy reports.
