Injured Joshua Davies 'easy bullies' target' says stepfather

A vulnerable teenage boy told he will never walk again after a bridge fall was trying to escape from bullies, say his family.

Joshua Davies, 18, of Pontypridd, Rhondda Cynon Taf, broke his spine in four places in the fall.

His family said police had been contacted 15 times about attacks on the teenager, who has Asperger's syndrome.

South Wales Police said it has carried out "a thorough investigation" into assault complaints.

Michael Morgan said because his stepson has Asperger's, he was an easy target for bullies.
